Thanks, Sara, 
That works! 
However, following the idea that the syntactic notation L[i] means
a sublist of L, again the syntactic notation

L[i] <- list(Name=Value)

should mean that the sublist is now assigned the list with the a unique named 
element. So I insist this is either a bug or an inconsistency of the language.

Thanks again,
