I don't really have time -- but I think I also noticed it on another machine
(a courtesy account on a VM at CRAN where I get to do reverse depends for
Rcpp and other upstream packages).

I do not do much BioConductor but it seems we are simply out of sync here,
and I think it is upstream as it also hit me on that box where I wouldn't not
install the r-* Debian packages as its purpose is on upstream work.
