Does ASReml-R work with R-2.9.0?

It would appear from my recent experience that R-2.9.0 does something different that is incompatible with the way the asreml package looks for the executable.

> require(asreml)
Loading required package: asreml
Error in dyn.load(file, DLLpath = DLLpath, ...) :
  unable to load shared library '$Rhome/asreml/libs/': cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 (Note that

 is not literally what's in the message.)
Has anyone used R-2.9.0 with asreml?
> sessionInfo()
R version 2.9.0 (2009-04-17)


attached base packages:
[1] grDevices utils stats graphics methods base

other attached packages:
[1] lattice_0.17-22

loaded via a namespace (and not attached):
[1] grid_2.9.0

Reverting to R-2.8.1 avoids the problem, but that's not a satisfactory solution..
