I want to add that the priority for this is rather low, since we have a couple of work 
arounds for the user/data set in question.  I have some ideas about changing the way in 
which ridge() works, which might make the problem moot.  The important short-term result 
was finding that it wasn't an error of mine in the survival package. :-)

Add it to your "think about it" list.
