thanks for this, will join R-package-devel and post there.

The file is a .tar.gz as it should be. R CMD check was used in the same 
way I used it hundred times before (actually two weeks ago on another 
package that didn't bring up this problem). I think R-devel was updated 
in the meantime, so it may have to do with the last version.
