For the first time I have a strange behaviour when checking a package 
before 'packaging' the code. Looks like a file cannot be read.

rcmd check pgirmess

* using log directory 'U:/Documents and Settings/pgiraudo/Mes 
documents/R/pgir_arch/pgirmess_arch/On work/pgirmess.Rcheck'
* using R version 2.13.2 (2011-09-30)
* using platform: i386-pc-mingw32 (32-bit)
* using session charset: ISO8859-1
* checking for file 'pgirmess/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* this is package 'pgirmess' version '1.5.2'
* checking package dependencies ... OK
* checking if this is a source package ... OK
* checking for .dll and .exe files ... OK
* checking whether package 'pgirmess' can be installed ... ERROR
Installation failed.
See 'U:/Documents and Settings/pgiraudo/Mes 
work/pgirmess.Rcheck/00install.out' for details.

In '00install.out',  I get:

* installing *source* package 'pgirmess' ...
** R
** data
** preparing package for lazy loading
** help
*** installing help indices
** building package indices ...
** testing if installed package can be loaded Error in gzfile(file, 
mode) : cannot open the connection
Calls: %in% -> match -> installed.packages -> saveRDS -> gzfile
In addition: Warning message:
In gzfile(file, mode) :
   cannot open compressed file 
probable reason 'No such file or directory'
Execution halted
ERROR: loading failed
* removing 

Any hint welcome ! I am stuck on that.
