Dear list, dear Max,

I a currently working on a report. I'm writing it with OpenOffice.org
and odfWeave. I'm working increentally : I write a bit, test
(interactively) some ideas, cutting-and-pasting code to the Ooo report
when satisfied with it. I the process, I tend to recompile the .odt
source a *lot*.

Suddenly, odfWeave started to give me an incomprehensible error even
before starting the compilation itself (InFile is my inut .odt file,
Outfile is the resultant .odt file) :

  Pre-processing the contents
Erreur : cc$parentId == parentId is not TRUE
Perusing the documentation and the r-help list archives didn't turn up
anything relevant. This error survived restarting OOo, restarting R,
restarting its enclosing Emacs session and even rebooting the damn

Any idea ?
