That line is a generic part of the timing (it records current time so that at the end you can do what amounts to "Time used:" proc.time() - .ptime). 

It is not likely to contain the actual error -- notice that the message just gives you a best guess of the error location and that may fail. You probably need to have a look at the actual radsafer-Ex.R file and its output to find the true culprit.

If you have catastrophic failures, yes, you see them only one at a time.
