[Rd] % symbol in .Rd files?

I am encountering problems when there is a '%' character in package .Rd files. More precisely, CRAN is having problems with these characters when running check, whereas I am not seeing any problems under Linux and Windows. I did see these problems, and found that escaping the %'s fixes the problem in my testing, but apparently this does not fix the problem when check is run at CRAN.

I suspect that there are some compatibility problems between shells, TeX, or perl versions, or perhaps the check on CRAN goes through more levels of preprocessing?

I can probably fix this problem by removing all '%' chars from my .Rd files, but this doesn't seem like a very natural solution.

Any ideas?
