[R] Which.min bug?

I'm not sure this is a bug, so I thought I'd bounce it off the help group
I had a dataset which I was subsetting, and occasionally I get an empty
subset. If I don't check for emptiness and go straight to a which.min call
on the subset, the program gets a big negative number back.
This caused an indexing error which was hard(ish) to track down. Should it
just return NA or throw an error? Should I re-submit to r-bugs? Or is there
some deep reason for this behavior that I don't understand?
