FWIW, I see that stringdist also doesn't pass R CMD check on r-release and
r-devel on Windows while Linux or r-oldrel on Windows gives no problems[1].

A quick scan of the release notes on Windows specific changes doesn't give
me a clue yet. I see the following possibly significant warning in the
output on Windows:

Warning: stack imbalance in '{', 39 then 40

I don't have a Windows PC handy where I can quickly reproduce this so if
anyone has solved similar problems it would be nice if they could be posted
