Dear R Developers,

I was recently emailed by the CRAN maintainers about warnings for my two
packages, analog and cocorresp, that are on CRAN.

I have built both packages (the versions on CRAN plus new,
in-development versions) under R 2.4.1, R 2.5.0-alpha [r41095] and R
2.6.0 (on two separate machines, both of which run FC 5 linux) and
cannot replicate the error message that the Daily Check Summary page

"checking R files for syntax errors ... WARNING
Warning in Sys.setlocale(category, locale) : 
OS reports request cannot be honored",

Which I get only for the R pre-release (r-prerel) on Linux ix86 and Mac
OS X ix86 versions.

I am actually at a loss as to what the problem might be. My packages
don't use Sys.setlocale() and I am not familiar enough with what this
function does to suggest why it might be causing a problem on the CRAN

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing these
warnings or how I might track down the problem?

All the best,
