I found that browseGenome in the rtracklayer package fails if the ranges supplied have names. This works:

> ir <- IRanges(20000, 50000)
> track <- GRangesForUCSCGenome("hg19", chrom="chr22", ranges=ir)
> browseGenome(track)
A genome browser session of class 'UCSCSession' with 1 views and 181 tracks

This does not work:

> ir <- IRanges(20000, 50000, names="a")
> track <- GRangesForUCSCGenome("hg19", chrom="chr22", ranges=ir)
> browseGenome(track)
Error in FUN(extractROWS(X, i), ...) : Invalid chromosomes for hg19: a

Thanks, cruft left over from when it was all based on RangedData. Fixed in devel (1.29.23).
