[R] a scope problem

 I have some code that looks like:

    dftc <- df[sets$tcset,]
    pt <- numeric(nrow(dftc))
    sub <- 1:nrow(dftc)
    for (i in 1:nrow(dftc)) {
        n <- nnet( fmla, data=dftc, weights=wts, subset=sub[-i], size=4,
        pt[i] <- predict( n, dftc[ i, ], type='class' )

However running this give me the error:

Error in eval(expr, envir, enclos) : Object "i" not found

I have noted this problem in some other instances. For example if I
define a function

f <- function( dat, sets ) {
  # use sets

I sometimes get an error similar to that above. 

Does anybody know why this would happen?
