[R] problem with cov.* in package lqs

Hi everyone,

I ran into an error message when I use the cov.* (rob, mcd, mve) function in
the package lqs.  The data matrix is 761 rows by 661 columns.  I get the
following message:

	NA/NaN/Inf in foreign function call (arg 1)

Can anyone provide some insight on why this occurs, and better yet, how to
get around it?

R 1.2.0 compiled from source on Linux Mandrake 7.1, running on Compaq SP750
with 2 P3 Xeons.
