[R] erro in SVM (packsge "e1071")

The way I call SVM is:
i <- (-2)
j <- 4
learner='svm'
learner.pars=list(Duracao ~ ., data=orig.data,
scale=c(FALSE, TRUE, TRUE, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE, TRUE,
FALSE, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE,
FALSE, FALSE, FALSE),
type='nu-regression', kernel='linear',
cost=2^(2*i), nu=j/10)
learner.pars$data <- orig.data[begin.test.pos:(test.pos-1),]
model <- do.call(learner,learner.pars)
The variables begin.test.pos and test.pos are windexes for orig.data and are
working well. in this case begin.test.pos = 1 and test.pos = 875.
orig.data is a data.frame where the second, third and seventh parameters are
numeric. The first parameter is a date and all the others are factors (some
of them ordered). The ordered factors are: Dia Semana (week day), DiaAno
(day of the year), DiaMes (day of the month), SemanaAno (week of the year)
and SemanaMes (week of the month).
The first two lines of the orig.data data.frame are:

I am using sliding window with 30 days (around 900 records) for training.
The error is in the svm function. May be because SVM uses other functions,
but it happens when I run svm.
Thanks a lot for the help
Joao
