a quick note first: the rkward-tracker list is really meant as a read-only 
list for reports submitted via the trackers 
(https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=50231). Manual mail is best 
addressed to rkward-users or rkward-devel, depending on the content.

Since this may be of interest to many users, I'm sending the reply to

This is due to a change between R 2.5 and 2.6. Debian unstable now has a 
pre-release of R 2.6, so this is why you see the problem. I have committed a 
fix for this to the development version, but there is no fixed release, yet.

To work around the problem, either
a) downgrade R (package r-base) to 2.5.1
b) download and compile the SVN version 

I'll try to get a fixed version of rkward into the debian archive, soon, but 
this may still take a while to happen.
