When both the fCalendar and chron packages are loaded, the function
easter(2005) returns the following object of class sdate:
If the chron package is unloaded, the result becomes correct. this
must be related to the following message which appears when attaching
"The following object(s) are masked from package:fCalendar :
day.of.week leap.year month.day.year"
It may also be related to sometimes differing origins for the julian
calendar functions (I have alternately seen 1960-01-01 and 1970-01-01
as the origin).
I cc'd the chron package maintainer. I am hoping Diethelm, the
fCalendar package manager, picks up this list as well.
