Hmm. Now I don't know OSX, but this points quite squarely at a dynamic
library loading failure. Does this affect other .Call() instances? Is
it possible that you're picking up another version of methods.so (or
whatever the extension is)? 

Are there "ldd" and "nm" command in MOSX? If so, what do they tell you
about the dyn.lib.? Is there an R_initialize_methods_metadata in it?
