Is there a workarond, like stating a different locale at selecting
gnome as the gui for R? I mean something like R --gui="gnome
--locale=english" . Note that I actually launch R --gui="gnome"
from a kde desktop.

Done, The bug is under incoming now.

Also, I've just noticed that this is not particular to lda.default,
as expected according to your message. I was trying the boxplot example by
Jay Pfaffman <pfaffman at relaxpc.com>
from within R --gui="gnome" and...
Error in if (any(out[nna])) stats[c(1, 5)] <- range(x[!out], na.rm = TRUE)
        missing value where logical needed
