Re: [Rd] vignette("introduction") causes "Error in sprintf(" (PR#9069)

Same for me. Looking through the output of vignette I noticed that both the ggplot and reshape packages have a vignette called "introduction" in my case and either of the following brings up the associated vignette (as opposed to the error message):

vignette("introduction", "ggplot")
vignette("introduction", "reshape")
