This problem is due to my specification in Rnw file i.e.

% \VignetteDepends{test}

If I remove this or remove just test and leave some other packages in it (that
are also in DESCRIPTION Depends field), then previously reported error in R CMD
check does not show up. It seems that I have not understood \VignetteDepends{}
properly. I thought that we need to specify all packages that are needed for
vignette to work.
