[R-pkg-devel] Diagnosing error on CRAN's old R, old Windows

>Unfortunately the error diagnostics are not particularly helpful, only showing that four tests failed; the only common thread I see, maybe, is that all four tests--and no others--use R's file.size() function.

Brief follow-up for completeness: it turns out that `file.size()`
doesn't exist on Windows R 3.1.1 - instead need to use
`file.info()$size`. So problem fixed, although I still don't know why
no error message was appearing.
