[Rd] example fails during R CMD CHECK but works interactively?

Thank you Dan but it isn't my tests that are failing (all of them pass
without problem) but one of the examples from the inst/examples directory.
I did try, however, to start R with the environmental variables as you
suggest but it had no effect on my tests.
