Hi
as I do not know what class is labelled and not knowing about your
data I just try to give you some hints.
What says str(adata) and str(bdata) about structure of your data?
It can be possible that in second case the structure of resulting
table can be formed into matrix and apply probably does this coercion
in accordance with Details section of help page.
But this is only a guess.
