[Rd] Error in formatDL(nm, txt, indent = max(nchar(nm, "w")) + 3)

       A call to help(..., help_type='text') fails with "package='fda":

 > install.packages('fda')
 > help(package='fda', help_type='text')
Error in formatDL(nm, txt, indent = max(nchar(nm, "w")) + 3) :
   incorrect values of 'indent' and 'width'

       I have this wrapped inside "try" in PackageSum2{sos}, so it 
doesn't die, but it also doesn't give me the additional information I 
want from help(..., help_type='text')

       Is this a bug?
