You had inquired whether anyone else was having problems with Matrix on 
a Mac... yep.  I am.  You'll see below that I removed both lme4 and 
Matrix, re-install from r-forge, but get an error msg.  sessionInfo() at 

Could someone point me to an earlier version of Matrix?  I don't believe 
I had this problem prior to the most recent update.

cheers, Dave
