For what it's worth, with

  R --no-init-file CMD check --as-cran ${pkg}_${version}.tar.gz

on R version 2.15.0 alpha (2012-03-03 r58572) on Windows I just managed to generate a crash:

Checking package affxparser...
* using log directory 'X:/affxparser,BioC-devel/R2.15.0/affxparser.Rcheck'

I can *not* reproduce it. Also, if I disable internet access, it continues with a warning:

Looking at tools:::..check_package_CRAN_incoming() [in src/library/tools/R/QC.R], there are few places where different online URLs:

URL 1: %s/src/contrib/PACKAGES.gz,
URL 2: %s/src/contrib/Meta/archive.rds,
URL 3: %s/src/contrib/Meta/current.rds,
URL 4: %s/web/packages/packages.rds

are downloaded, but it is only the first one that is downloaded with exception handling. Thus, if URL 2, 3 or 4 is broken/being updated, or internet access goes down, the above crash would occur.

Also, in tools:::.check_Rd_xrefs() another URL is downloaded assuming working internet access.

Just feedback. I can live the above, but it could be that others report on this in the future.
