[R-sig-ME] [PATCH] lmList does not work for generalized lm's

The lmList function from current (0.99875-8, and svn head) lme4 gives
an error if one attempts to use it for a glm, e.g.:

> lmList(TIME ~ LOGPROB3 | SUBJ, ff, inverse.gaussian(link="identity"))
Error in FUN(X[[1L]], ...) : 
  unused argument(s) (family = list(family = "inverse.gaussian", link = "identity", linkfun = function (mu) 

The problem is in line 53 of lmList.R -- a simple patch against
current svn that fixes this problem is attached.
