Dear all,

I was notified about errors:

Since I don't have access to those operating systems, I'm a little bit lost.
Here is what I get with 64bit R on Windows:
x <- method.B(details = TRUE, print = FALSE,
               data = rds30, option = 1)[c(10, 19)]
y <- c(17.86418, 92.73371)
d <- as.numeric(signif(abs(x - y), 7))

With R 3.6.2
[1] 4.431372e-06 1.182994e-07

With R 3.6.3
[1] 1.078696e-05 1.182989e-07

x[10] are Satterthwaite's degrees of freedom obtained by package 
pbkrtest. In both R-versions I use its current version (0.4-8.6 of 

Any ideas / suggestions?
As a workaround I could reduce the tolerance of testthat's 
expect_quivalent() from to currently 5e-7 to a higher (_which one?_) 
value. But I still want to know what might be going on the CRAN's 
linux/solaris devel/patched installations since the other R-versions on 
all operating systems passed the tests.
