[R] glm: NA/NaN/Inf in foreign function call

Dear all,
I am running the glm function (family: Poisson) in R and most of the time it
works fine. But sometimes, with large data sets, I get the following error
Error: NA/NaN/Inf in foreign function call (arg 1) 

What puzzles me most about this is the fact that there are no missing values
in my vectors at all- so where do the missing values come from? Could this
be related to the size of the vectors I use?
