[R] Error: subscript out of bounds

The first thing I normally do when I see an error is to call traceback()
to see the list of function calls, which generated the error, i.e.
the path of functions up to the error. This way you can find exactly
where the error exception is thrown. The you do debug(...) on that
function and try to backtrack *why* it happens, i.e. maybe one of calling
functions in the traceback() list passes erronous arguments. This might
require that you debug(...) other functions in the list. To undebug a
function, just to undebug(...) on that function. Don't forget to look at
