[R-pkg-devel] Package valgrind problem I can't solve: Direction?

I ran into similar problems with using valgrind to check  my package  BAS

From my understanding using valgrind with rhub does not run the same checks as

R -d "valgrind --tool=memcheck --leak-check=full" --vanilla < mypkg-Ex.R

see https://github.com/r-hub/rhub/issues/23
which might explain why it will run without errors there but the CRAN check will flag errors/warnings.  (perhaps someone else can confirm)

Lucky for that caveat. Feeling rather stupid for this late effort.

Thanks so much.  Help greatly appreciated.

Impossible or not… it just happened (unless I am being really stupid, which
is entirely possible, indeed probable). I confirmed again this morning:
After rebuilding (R CMD build) and checking (R CMD check) without any
errors, I used rhub and the command line again:

Running valgrind at the command line, I get this error:

   What I meant is that, if you run the script in tweedie.Rcheck from the
   command line, Rscript uses your *installed* version of tweedie, not
   the tarball you built with R CMD build. So if you didn't run R CMD
   INSTALL, Rscript is running an old version without any fix, hence the
   disagreement with R CMD check.
