See the file src/library/tools/R/check.R in the R sources, and grep for
as_cran which is the internal variable controlled by the --as-cran option

This was widely discussed on this list and should also be in the NEWS file.

The change is about what the message says: the if () tests a scalar logical,
it appears that ismat(kmat) returns more than a scalar.

There has always been an opt-in for this to error -- cf many messages by Henrik
over the years as he tried to convince us all to use it more.
