[Rd] R-2.6.0 package check problems

One of my packages, untb_1.3-2, passes R CMD check under MacOSX (and apparently the systems used in the package check summary page on CRAN) but fails with the following message on R-2.6.0.tgz compiled last night on my (home) linux box. I hasten to add that I have never seen this error before on home-compiled pre-releases of R-2.6.0.

Can anyone help me understand what is going on?

localhost:~/scratch%R CMD check untb_1.3-2.tgz


creating untb-Ex.R ... OK
* checking examples ... ERROR
Running examples in 'untb-Ex.R' failed.
The error most likely occurred in:

> ### * butterflies
> flush(stderr()); flush(stdout())
> ### Name: butterflies
> ### Title: abundance data for butterflies
> ### Aliases: butterflies butterfly
> ### Keywords: datasets
> ### ** Examples
> data(butterflies)
> plot(butterflies, uncertainty=TRUE)

Error in log(theta) :
