[R] dump.frames, debugger and the "..." argument

Dear List, 

i run R non interactively and use option(error = dump.frames) to reconstruct the cause of errors for debugging. One of the functions in the call stack however uses the "..." (dot dot dot) argument. When I run debugger() and try to browse to this functions' environment I get the following error message:

Error in get(.obj, envir = dump[[.selection]]) : 
  argument "..." is missing, with no default

Some googleing showed that this seems to be a more common problem but I was not able to find any solution.

Any ideas?
