A plugin of R seems not to work anymore.[...]An R-y friend pointed me toward http://developer.r-project.org/parseRd.pdf which documents changes to the .Rd format.Correct. R 2.10.0, released in October, switched the documentation parser implementation (from an external one written in Perl to an internal one written in R). At the same time some definitions were tightened. For 'normal' R packages (eg on CRAN) this was transitioned with warnings first that later turned to errors. Ie not unlike what we do with Lintian. Hope this helps. I would be glad to take a look at the Rd file in question if someone could email it my way.
The Rd file in question is attached for your convenience. In case you prefer web links, I put it up at http://makesad.us/~paulproteus/tmp/TeXmacs.Rd
