[Rd] Question about .Rd syntax

Hello all,

In one of my packages, I have the following warning with R-devel, but no problems with R 2.1.0, or R patched:

Functions with \usage entries need to have the appropriate \alias entries, and all their arguments documented.
The \usage entries must correspond to syntactically valid R code. See chapter 'Writing R documentation files' in manual 'Writing R Extensions'.

my function is:

"guiStart" <-
function(gui = "\"%SciViews_Home%/bin/RConsole.exe\" -connect") {

    ....
}

and the way it is defined in \usage:
\usage{

   guiStart(gui = "\"%SciViews_Home%/bin/RConsole.exe\" -connect") }

I am pretty sure it is a stupid error I made regarding \", or something similar. Could someone tell me what that stupid error really is? Thanks.

Philippe
