The occasional hint might slip though the iron-cladding once in a while though. In this case, learning how to use options(error=recover) might be relevant. Turn it on, let the error occur and do the post mortem. The culprit is obviously that f(2) isn't positive. Unless F has turned out all-zero or has negative elements, you need a larger value of 2, otherwise, find out why F is weird.
