I have a new package (local use only).  R CMD check fails with a messge I haven't seen before, and I haven't been able to guess the cause.
There are two vignettes, both of which have %\VignetteIndexEntry lines.

Same failure both under R-3.1.1 and R-devel, so it's me and not R.  Linux OS.

Hints anyone?
