Thanks!!  I did an update of raster before our previous 
emails, but apaprently it didn't take, even after:

 > rm(list=ls(all=TRUE))
 > Close R&  save workspace (answer = yes)

...what it took was (at Mac Terminal):

   486  cd 
   487  ls
   488  cd raster
   489  ls
   490  cd ..
   491  rm -R raster
   492  ls

(On Mac OS X, R.app gui)

And then in R.app gui:


Restart (save workspace = yes)

Packages --> Package Installer --> Local Source Package --> 
Install --> raster_1.7-18.tgz (downloaded manually from CRAN)

So now the below works.  Thanks!  I'm cross-posting to 
r-sig-geo for posterity.
