Note that the problem is not that you got the message, but an apparent whitespace issue in the output. That's clearer in this version: note that the output for reg-IO.Rout.save is shifted left one column. But I don't trust email to transmit these things faithfully (especially after the last two days of encoding issues).

So the problem is most likely either the way reg-IO.Rout.save got unpacked or your 'diff' function.

You don't mention an OS, but my recollection is that you usually use Linux. I *have* seen an error in this test on Cygwin, where the issue was the unpacking by tar.

If this is Linux, it has been tested successfully many times by others, and I don't recall any change to that test since 2.6.2 (and nor do the SVN logs).

That's a late test, but it did terminate with an error.

Some, but with your toolset.
