[R-sig-ME] possible side effect of gdata library on dotplot of random terms

Dear all

It seems there is a name conflict between the reorder.factor() function
from the package "gdata" and the reorder.factor() from the package "stats" .
After loading the  library "gdata", dotplot(ranef( model_object.lmer)  )
 - which seems using internally  by default reorder.factor()  from the 
package "stats"  -
does not plot the random terms sorted any more .
The regular behavior can be recovered with:
but is there an easier or a more convenient way ?

Thank you for your help
