Greetings, R-Helpers:  

I am trying to build a package on WinXP, something that I have done before, but infrequently, and have recently updated both the Rtools and the version of R being used.  

My test case fails after successfully creating the compiled html files with this error message:




c:\DOCUME~1\CHARLE~1\LOCALS~1\Temp\Rbuild142865646\March18\chm\March18.chm, 41,494 bytes

Compression decreased file by 50,957 bytes.

  preparing package March18 for lazy loading

Loading required package: rcom

Loading required package: RODBC

Loading required package: RColorBrewer

Loading required package: survival

Loading required package: splines

Error in parse(n = -1, file = file) : invalid \uxxxx sequence

Calls: <Anonymous> -> code2LazyLoadDB -> sys.source -> parse

Execution halted

make: *** [lazyload] Error 1

Removing 'C:/DOCUME~1/CHARLE~1/LOCALS~1/Temp/Rinst142800030/March18'    

While I can clearly read that the problem is invalid \uxxxx sequence I don't know what it means nor how to remedy it.  

Helpful suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
