We were looking into the same issue yesterday and didn't yet come up
with a solution.

I'm nearly certain this is not a fault with the package itself, but
either something we are doing wrong in our build/check process or a
small bug in the R CMD check stuff.

What I was seeing yesterday (testing on Linux) was that running R CMD
check --no-vignettes would show a WARNING if a previous R CMD INSTALL
had left object files.  Running with vignettes causes a compilation
cycle and subsequent src/ dir cleaning.
