Simon and Kasper,

I have gotten around the problem of the broken entry points by 
directly installing source files  by
>  source("http://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
>  biocLite("graph")
>  biocLite("Rgraphviz").
Now, everything works like a charm (again).

As I am sure you know, there is still a problem with installing from 
the Packages and Data menu:

Error: could not find function "package.manager"
Error: could not find function "browse.pkgs"

I am using R.app
R.app GUI 1.27 (5372 Tiger build 32-bit), S.Urbanek & S.M.Iacus,

R version 2.9.0 alpha (2009-03-23 r48200)


attached base packages:
[1] grid      stats     graphics  grDevices utils     datasets  methods 
[8] base    

other attached packages:
[1] GPArotation_2008.05-1 Rgraphviz_1.21.9      graph_1.21.4        
[4] MASS_7.2-46           psych_1.0-67        

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
[1] cluster_1.11.12 tools_2.9.0   

Best wishes,
