You can have packages two places
(1) system wide
(2) user specific
The packages that ship with R always install system wide which is why
- when you look in your user specific packages - you don't see any.
You need to reinstall the packages for 2.13. You cannot just copy the
directories. You can use the directory to figure out which packages
you did install.

And, yes, I have restarted my machine several times since this was checked (I think I set this two days ago).
