I did a make clean and then make, and now everything seems to be working. If anyone has a more precise understanding of the source of the previous error, I'd love to know. My theory was that the old elc files were screwing things up.
There were also a bunch of warnings associated with the make; I can share them if anyone is interested. Ross ______________________________________________ ESSfirstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://stat.ethz.ch/mailman/listinfo/ess-help
