[R] More problems checking an R package

I am having a few more miscellaneous problems when I run R CMD check on
my package.

All of the early stuff works OK.  I get a WARNING at the "checking S3
generic/method consistency" stage, where it seems to think two of my
fucntions are inconsistent with plot() (I don't understand why it thinks

I then get another WARNING indicating that I have an undocumented data
set called ".Traceback", but I can't find anything called .Traceback on
my entire system.

Finally, all my examples run fine, all my Latex is checked and that's
OK, and I get:

* creating mypackage-manual.tex ... OK
* checking mypackage-manual.tex ... ERROR
LaTeX errors when creating DVI version.
This typically indicates Rd problems.

This is in contrast to the first line of the output which states:

* checking for working latex ... OK

So I'm kind of stuck here.  I'd like to ask if there is something I can
use to check my Rd files WITHOUT having to run the examples, as the
examples all take about 30 minutes to run, and so it's not a quick
bug-tracking cycle...

Any ideas, comments welcome!
