No double post. If you're not subscribed, it just goes to some electronic bin...

Your email, while long, does not contain a self-contained reproducible
example so nobody can really help you.  

I would recommend that you simplify you setup by creating a smaller package
with maybe just Rcpp and bigmemory and a single function.  Once that works,
pivot back and fix your main package.

Maybe your namespace declarations are wrong or missing.  Without your code we
cannot tell.
