[Rd] uninformative error message in R CMD check (PR#9459)

I just saw the following using R version 2.4.1 (2006-12-18) in output from R CMD check.

In looking at the help page (the only one in the package so far) I noticed that there was no details section even though I wrote one. The problem was a missing close curly, that is, I had

\details{

    Blah, blah, blah.
\value{

    A list ....
    }

I don't know whether it is possible to have an actually informative error message, but it would be nice if possible. The error went away and the package checked OK when I added the close curly

\details{

    Blah, blah, blah.
    }
\value{

    A list ....
    }
