When preparing documentation using Rd2dvi sometimes we get "overflow" on
some lines. The consequence is that in the documentation there are some
lines where words are not hyphenated or moved. The final document has some
lines with more columns than the rest of the text. 
This happens when we use \code{} (which probably calls the \tt in latex).

I've been checking the documentation (.pdf files) of a few packages  and
this seens to occours all over.

One possible way to correct this is  by introducing the command
on the header of the automatically generated .tex files. It seens to work
fine in some tests I've run.

I'm wondering whether the "\sloppy" can be incorporated to the Rd2dvi
