[Rd] R CMD check: "..." used in a situation where it does not exist

Dear R developers,

when running R CMD check, the R Under development (unstable)
(2015-01-13 r67453) gives me the following NOTE:

cbind.fsets: possible error in list(...): ... used in a situation
where it does not exist

The file that causes this note contains:

cbind.fsets <- function(..., deparse.level = 1) {
    dots <- list(...)

    res <- NULL
    resVars <- NULL
    resSpecs <- NULL

    for (i in seq_along(dots)) {
        arg <- dots[[i]]
        argName <- names(dots)[i]

        if (!is.null(arg)) {
            if (!is.fsets(arg)) {
                stop("Function 'cbind.fsets' cannot bind arguments
that are not valid 'fsets' objects")
            class(arg) <- setdiff(class(arg), 'fsets')
            if (is.null(res)) {
                resVars <- vars(arg)
                resSpecs <- specs(arg)
                res <- arg
            } else {
                resVarNames <- c(names(resVars), names(vars(arg)))
                resVars <- c(resVars, vars(arg))
                names(resVars) <- resVarNames

                o1 <- matrix(0, nrow=nrow(resSpecs), ncol=ncol(specs(arg)))
                o2 <- matrix(0, nrow=nrow(specs(arg)), ncol=ncol(resSpecs))
                resSpecs <- rbind(cbind(resSpecs, o1),
                                  cbind(o2, specs(arg)))
                colnames(resSpecs) <- names(resVars)
                rownames(resSpecs) <- names(resVars)
                res <- cbind(res, arg)

    return(fsets(res, resVars, resSpecs))

I want to avoid any NOTES prior submitting my package to CRAN, but I
cannot find any information what is wrong with my code and how to get
rid of that message during R CMD check process.

Does anybody of you know what is wrong with my code?

Thank you, in advance.

Best regards,
