  results of traceback() after the error?   precise wording of the error message?
  any chance of sending to the list, or posting, a data set that produces the error? (see the posting guide ...)

  on the face of it is puzzling because pvals.fnc doesn't seem to do any fitting, just post-processing of the lmer object ...

  (by the way, that's "the languageR package" -- library(fortunes); fortune("Maechler.*package"))
