When I try to run SnowballStemmer() I get a raft of 
what appear to be Java errors:

> source <- readLines(system.file("words", "porter","voc.txt",
+                                      package = "Snowball"))
> result <- SnowballStemmer(source)

Does this look like a problem with my Java installation?  Or if not, then ... ?
