[R] Fail to convert any .Rd file

Hello, experts!

I've tried to convert MASS.Rd, for instance:

    R CMD Rdconv -t txt MASS.Rd -o MASS.txt 2>MASS.log

Comp was thinking for a long, about 30s on Linux 600MHz/128M,
but after that R didn't produce the result MASS.txt file, but
very large log.  Here is its header:

******* Syntax error: mismatched or missing brackets in
Australian AIDS Survival Data
\description{ ...

and so on, almost entire MASS.Rd followed ..

The same situation with man/*.Rd file of any other package.
Where am I wrong?!

Excuse me for my unexperience,
Thanks a lot!

PS  I'm using R 1.5.0 under Linux (Debian woody) on i386 platform.
