[Rd] 'R CMD build' ignoring segfaults occuring during the vignettes creation

Sorry for erroneous subject of my previous post. Here it goes again.


Something else I'd like to report.
If a segmentation fault occurs during the "creating vignettes" step,
then 'R CMD build' ignores the problem and end up building the source
package anyway:

   /loc/biocbuild/1.9d/R/bin/R CMD build RMAGEML
   * checking for file 'RMAGEML/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
   * preparing 'RMAGEML':


   * creating vignettes ...sh: line 1:  8070 Segmentation fault      '/loc/biocbuild/1.9d/R/bin/R' --vanilla --no-save
--quiet /tmp/Rout656233925 2>&1
   * cleaning src
   * removing junk files
   * checking for LF line-endings in source files
   * checking for empty or unneeded directories
   * building 'RMAGEML_2.7.0.tar.gz'

'R CMD check' behaves the same way during the "checking package vignettes" step.
I have observed this problem with R 2.3.0 and R 2.4.0 devel (r37925).
