It also looks at non-standard libraries in libPaths.  If I go
and then proceed as before, i.e.,
C-c C-t C-t
C-c C-t C-a
"silly" does appear on the list of packages to add; in fact it's at the

However, if I put a breakpoint in foo and C-c C-l the file the
breakkpoint happens but the line is not highlighted in the source window
when the break occurs.  When I step the highlight remains off.

I thought the line was highlighted earlier, but just now if I do not
use .libPaths and add with C-u C-c C-t C-a the source line is not
highlighted.  I restarted the R session before doing the experiment.

None of these scenarios reproduced my original problem.
