[R] R CMD check creates a syntax error

Using R Version 1.6.2  (2003-01-10) I did R CMD check.  The package I
was checking includes an .Rd file with an example.

My package test directory included a file foo-Ex.R whose first line was
WARNING: ignoring environment value of R_HOME

There are some problems with this:
1. R_HOME is not set.
2. The line is a syntax error, causing the test to fail.

Furthermore, I got this warning message a lot in my transcript while
check was running.

Could anyone explain what is going on, or how to get around this?


appears related, but it says the error message arises from having R_HOME
set when it shouldn't be.  I haven't set it, as far as I can tell. 
Could it be somehow set inside my default R environment?
