1) The problem is with minqa, not caret (let alone CARET: R is 

2) As the posting guide says, update your R before posting.

3) We are missing the 'at a minimum' information, the output of 
sessionInfo().  You have not told us how you installed R, but my guess 
is that you used one of the two binary packages from CRAN (but we have 
no way to know which).  If so, you definitely should be using the 
R-sig-Mac mailing list.

So my advice is to

- update R
- reinstall your packages, especially minqa
- if problems persist, send a full report to R-sig-Mac following the 
posting guide.
