If you do a local install from the tar.gz file, do you get the title?  I 
think CRAN doesn't normally rebuild vignettes for storage, only for 

When I try to build the vignette from the source in your link, I get 
this error:

Quitting from lines 40-42 (Untitled.Rmd)
Error: `x` must be a string or a R connection
Execution halted

This comes from the code chunk

synthetic <- clusterlab(centers=1,numbervec=100)

which generates that error on its own.
