Not really (see 'commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code' 
below), but the message means that you are trying to name an R object with 
a name of more than MAXIDSIZE=256 bytes.

Please quote messages accurately: your subject line and text are different 
and your helpers need to search for the exact error.
