Hi Giulia,

It seems that the issue is further down the callstack, likely in circlize.
To reproduce, you can enable _R_CHECK_LENGTH_1_* from 

You might have to open an issue at https://github.com/jokergoo/circlize

Note. FWIW write temporary files using tempfile() rather than getwd().

Best regards,

Even if in my local dev environment I have no build issues, the build fails on all platforms when running the example in the documentation of such function, here are the details of the error http://bioconductor.org/checkResults/devel/bioc-LATEST/ISAnalytics/merida1-checksrc.html
