Just letting everyone know that rtracklayer is currently unable to interact with the UCSC browser. It seems that something has changed with the UCSC server, which is now refusing to process R HTTP requests for the main "hgTracks" page. I'm trying to get to the bottom of this. Thanks for your patience. Michael [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

Should be fixed as of rtracklayer 1.5.6 (and 1.4.1 in release). Actually, it was due to a bug, where the page would crash if User-Agent wasn't supplied in the header. This is soon to be fixed upstream, but I went ahead and changed rtracklayer to pass its name as the User Agent. So everything should work now.
