This should probably have been addressed to R-pkg-devel, not Rd.

This is not the "detritus in the temp directory"; the message is related
to the previous line in the log:

>> * checking for non-standard things in the check directory ... NOTE

I searched the repo for the file name in question and got a few hits
[1]. R CMD check runs the \examples{}, including those in
man/fdaMatlabPath.Rd. The function from R/fdaMatlabPath.R, called from
the examples, writes a file in the current directory [2], which
happens to be the check directory during R CMD check. In order to
conform to the CRAN policy, the function should receive the target file
name as a parameter instead, and the example should pass a file path
somewhere in tempdir().

Best regards,
