[Rd] stop() and Rcmd

It looks like stop() in test files does not generate an error that is caught by Rcmd
check on NT. Thus the fact that all the tests completed does not seem to mean too
much. In Unix if the tests complete then there have not been stop()s generated by out
of tolerance comparisons. This seems to mean that on NT all *.Rout files (50 or so)
need to be  examined to be sure that tests completed correctly.

At the bottom of the crvB07.Rout file you sent you will see

>   if (! all.ok) stop("some tests FAILED")
Error: some tests FAILED
Execution halted

Perhaps you could grep for "Execution halted" in the *.Rout files to see if other
tests failed. I am especially concerned about the tests in dse. The ones you sent
from dseplus are numerically sensitive and the second one seems to have passed, so
things look fairly good. (BTW, the values do seem to correspond more closely to
Solaris than Linux.)
