I took a closer look and your problem is that you want


rather than


since C is a function but "C" the character you actually want to set.

Anyway, there is a bug in ./src/library/tools/R/testing.R (e.g. for 
today's R-devel):

The line

     tests3 <- c("reg-tests-1", "reg-tests-2", "reg-IO", "reg-IO2", 

needs to be replaced by

     tests3 <- c("reg-tests-1a", "reg-tests-1b", "reg-tests-2", 
"reg-IO", "reg-IO2", "reg-S4")

Any R core member around to fix this?
