[Rd] Problem in vignette packaging of Sweave in utils package

In ?Sweave, it refers to Sweave User Manual. In the doc folder of utils package, I see "Sweave.pdf".

However, I can't find it from within R

> vignette("Sweave User Manual")

Warning message:
vignette ‘Sweave User Manual’ not found

> browseVignettes("utils")

No vignettes found by browseVignettes("utils")

> library(help=utils)

does not refer to any vignettes.

The vignette does not appear in the main page for utils in help.start().

I checked the source code for the Sweave vignette, but I don't see anything wrong. It has all of the required elements:

%\VignetteIndexEntry{Sweave User Manual}
%\VignettePackage{utils}
%\VignetteDepends{tools}
%\VignetteDepends{datasets}
%\VignetteDepends{stats}

Am I accessing it incorrectly, or is there something wrong in my install of R-2.15.1?
