no, the build system should only propagate packages that have passed build and check -- the goal is to make the life of the user easier and more reliable, us developers have to sweat the details!
Usually there is a single package that has changed and causes problems, and like in the present case a little detective work (once one knows what to look for) leads quickly to the suspect.

Thanks Martin, i wasn't aware about that fact. i've cloned the gwascat
repo and been able to directly install from the directory and reproduce
the error. in this case, this was easy because it involved just one
package but with multiple broken package dependencies, i'd have to
manually clone each of them and install them to reproduce the error.
would it be a good idea in the devel build system to propagate the tar
ball resulting of
R CMD build --no-build-vignettes
so that we get automatically updates for at least those whose problem is
in the vignettes only?
