[R-pkg-devel] CRAN checks question

I was hoping to submit a new version of my FSA package today when I noticed that the current version on CRAN has an error on the CRAN checks page (which I don't believe was there when I first submitted that version of the package).  The error is detailed here (https://cran.r-project.org/web/checks/check_results_FSA.html) and copied below.  The error is only for the "r-devel-windows-ix86+x86_64" flavor and appears to be related to missing gdata and testthat packages.  I looked at both the gdata and testthat packages on CRAN and they have clean CRAN checks.  I looked at a handful of other packages that depend on gdata and testthat and they appear to have clean CRAN checks.  I checked the package on win-builder and it did not return any errors.  Any pointers?

Version: 0.8.1 
Check: examples 
Result: ERROR 
    Running examples in 'FSA-Ex.R' failed
    The error most likely occurred in:
    > ### Name: Subset
    > ### Title: Subsets/filters a data frame and drops the unused levels.
    > ### Aliases: Subset filterD
    > ### Keywords: misc
    > ### ** Examples
    > ## The problem -- note use of unused level in the final table.
    > levels(iris$Species)
    [1] "setosa" "versicolor" "virginica" 
    > iris.set1 <- subset(iris,Species=="setosa" | Species=="versicolor")
    > levels(iris.set1$Species)
    [1] "setosa" "versicolor" "virginica" 
    > xtabs(~Species,data=iris)
     setosa versicolor virginica 
     50 50 50 
    > ## A simpler fix using Subset
    > iris.set2 <- Subset(iris,Species=="setosa" | Species=="versicolor")
