I just committed a fix for you.  The problem seemed to be that you had
unespaped '$' characters.  Wrapping them in \code{something$else}
fixed things.  

I also converted a few files that had mixed line ending style (a
little Windows a little unix) to unix style.  Files should be one or
the other.

How did I find the error?

After running R CMD check, look in the ideograph.Rcheck dir and browse
the ideogram-manual.log file.  This told me where to look in the
ideograpm-manual.tex file and this told me where to fix the problem in
the Rd file.
