That would have resulted from running the example in ?fdaMatlabPath.

You could stop that from happening in a test by using

if (interactive())

but it still potentially wipes out a user's file.  Can't you ask the 
user for the filename to write to, and have the example write to 
tempdir() instead of the current directory?
