I've never seen the error mentioned before but see Brian Ripley's post https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-help/2008-March/157341.html. It looks like you are exceeding a limit.

We probably should see some sample code and data. 

Please have a look at http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5963269/how-to-make-a-great-r-reproducible-example and/or http://adv-r.had.co.nz/Reproducibility.html  for some suggestions on what to include in a question.
