Interestingly, that does not start a browser, and options(error=dump.frames) appears to have no effect, either. geterrmessage() does list the error, though. I'm not sure whether that is or is not the expected handling of errors inside input handlers.

Either way, I found I can trigger the error using

   tools:::httpd("/doc/html/Search", c(pattern = "grid")) debugging from there shows that the error is on line

   vignettes[i,] <- c(pkg, unlist(vignette[,c("File", "Title", "PDF", "R")])) At this point, "vignette" is:

                File                 Title             PDF  Depends Keywords
   1 displaylist.Rnw Display Lists in grid displaylist.pdf graphics         
   2 displaylist.Snw Display Lists in grid displaylist.pdf graphics         

   1 displaylist.R
   2 displaylist.R

It appears, the cause of the problem was failure to "make clean" every once in a while, and this resulted in installing both displaylist.Rnw and displaylist.Snw (into a single library location).
