[R] Built-In Wilks Lambda for lda?

using the lda-method from MASS-package I was wondering whether there is
a built-in method for figuring out Wilks' Lambda?
Searching the Web I found in the r-help archive a thread form june 2002,
but it didn't help me.
I understand I can use manova and its summary-method to get Wilks' Lambda
on the screen, but I don't see the connection to lda from MASS.
summary( manova( df[ train] ~ classes[ train]),test="Wilks")
produce Wilks Lambda as used in lda/MASS?
In this case I would not know if an access like this
lambda <- summary( manova( as.matrix(dataframe) ~ classes),test="Wilks")$stats[
would give me Wilk's Lambda under all circumstances.
I played a little with some data and found out this is not working every
time. manova errors sometimes "residuals have rank x < y" where "y" equals
ncol(df). But this shouln't impact Wilk's Lambda?
Thanks for your help,
