[R] data for Rwave package

I just installed the new Rwave package.  On the Win2000 platform it will
not find its data files (it does fine under Linux).

Here is what I do:
(1)  library(Rwave)
(2)  data()               -  this correctly reports all the data sets
(3)  data(HOWAREYOU)      -  this fails on Win2000 machine with the
following message
          Error in file(file, "r") : cannot open file `HOWAREYOU'

What seems to be happening is that there exists a HOWAREYOU.R file in
Rdata.zip.  The data function finds this file fine, but it just contains
          HOWAREYOU <- scan("HOWAREYOU")
and the actual data file cannot be found as it sits in the
$R_HOME/library/Rwave/data directory.

Is there an easy way to fix it? (I know I can edit every *.R file putting
absolute paths into the scan statements or incorporate the data files into
the *.R files).
Is this a bug in the Windows version?

Thanks in advance,
