Sorry if I was unclear, but yes, it was settled with the help of Kurt. As I
said, the latest r-devel includes some new type checking (to be sure that
STRING_ELT is applied where it makes sense, for example), and this
is why CRAN was picking up problems that I was not seeing.

I guess I missed that fact about the '%' character in the docs.
