Aargh! A stupid mistake on my part. Indeed, in the past I had also loaded maptools, I did it now and indeed the conversion works.
I was misled by the thought that the type conversion would be by the packages that defined of the class(es) in question, in this case sp and spatstat. Of course there is no reason why another package can not read both those classes and do the conversion.
Again, apologies for cluttering the list, but maybe someone searching the archives will have made a similar oversight.
