[Rd] Debugging "SETLENGTH() cannot be applied to an ALTVEC object."?

Hi all,
I wish to push a new version of a package (heatmaply).

I sent it to winbuild with no issues but after submitting it to CRAN I got
an update that it breaks on Debian, see:

package heatmaply_0.15.0.tar.gz does not pass the incoming checks
automatically, please see the following pre-tests:
Windows: <https://win-builder.r-project.org/incoming_pretest/
Status: OK
Debian: <https://win-builder.r-project.org/incoming_pretest/
Status: 1 ERROR, 1 WARNING

Looking at the errors I get, they are all of the type:
"SETLENGTH() cannot be applied to an ALTVEC object."
I assume this is somehow related to changes in R 3.5.0 (maybe related to
but I'm not sure how to debug it (as I don't have this environment set-up),
not am I sure what is actually causing the issue.

Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

(I debated if to post it here or on r-package-devel, and it seems a more
general R issue than package development issue - but feel free to correct
me about this if you think otherwise)
