pathview returns incorrect mappings for yeast

I am having trouble getting pathview to map refseq systematic IDs (locus_tag) to the correct gene symbol. For example, pathview maps YLR174W to IDP1 when it should be IDP2, and YOL126C to MDH3 when it should be MDH2. Any suggestions?

> x[[1]]$ %>% filter(kegg.names %in% c('YLR174W', 'YOL126C'))
   kegg.names labels all.mapped type   x   y width height log2FoldChange mol.col
39    YLR174W   IDP1    YLR174W gene 718 510    46     17       1.161110 #FF0000
41    YLR174W   IDP1    YLR174W gene 718 405    46     17       1.161110 #FF0000
47    YOL126C   MDH3    YOL126C gene 253 349    46     17       1.898154 #FF0000

This is how I am calling pathview

mapKEGGpathway = function(name, res, pathway_id, lfc_thres, padj_thres = .05, species = 'sce'){

  fltr_res = res %>% %>%
    filter(abs(log2FoldChange) > lfc_thres &
           padj < padj_thres) %>%

  pathview( = fltr_res,
    gene.idtype = 'kegg', # per the documentation
    kegg.native = FALSE,
    map.symbol = TRUE,
    expand.node = TRUE, = pathway_id,
    species = species,
    out.suffix = paste0(name, "_", names(pathways[pathways == pathway_id]))


x = map(names(shrunken_res_lists$minus_lys),
  ~mapKEGGpathway(., shrunken_res_lists$minus_lys[[.]], 
     pathway_id = pathways$tca_cycle, lfc_thres = 1))

shrunken_res_list$minus_lys is a list of DESeq2 results tables that look like this:

> head(shrunken_res_lists$minus_lys$EDS1)
log2 fold change (MMSE): aminoAcid_HisMetLeuUra_vs_LysHisMetLeuUra vs genotypeEDS1.aminoAcidHisMetLeuUra

Seems like a problem with the kgml file for that pathway. If you download that file, you will see this:

    <entry id="39" name="sce:YDL066W sce:YLR174W sce:YNL009W" type="gene" reaction="rn:R00268"
        <graphics name="IDP1..." fgcolor="#000000"

Where YLD066W is IDP1, YLR174W is IDP2 and YNL009W is IDP3. pathview parses the KGML file for the gene symbols and since there is only one symbol provided, you get mismatches.

For the sake of completeness, that was the tca cycle pathway sce00020. Thank you for checking that -- I did write to kegg for what it is worth.
