Your 'height' factor has values 1, 2, 2, 3 so when the second panel is drawn (for 'height == 2'), there are two dendrograms to draw in the panel. Specifically, 'dend4b$lower[[subscripts]]' fails because 'subscripts' is c(2, 3). You can see this with some crude debugging as  in ...

dendpanel <- function(x, y, subscripts, ...) {

    pushViewport(viewport(y = space,

                          width = 0.90,
                          height = unit(0.90, "npc") - space,
                          just = "bottom"))
    par(plt = gridPLT(), new = TRUE, ps = 10) cat(subscripts, "\n")

    plot(dend4b$lower[[subscripts]], axes = FALSE)     popViewport()
}

... and you can get something to work if you adjust the code like this ...

dendpanel <- function(x, y, subscripts, ...) {

    pushViewport(viewport(y = space,

                          width = 0.90,
                          height = unit(0.90, "npc") - space,
                          just = "bottom"))
    par(plt = gridPLT(), new = TRUE, ps = 10)     plot(dend4b$lower[subscripts][[1]], axes = FALSE)     popViewport()
}

... but that drops one of the dendrograms. You need to set up x, y, and height differently so that they correspond better to the dendrogram structure that you have in 'dend4b'.

Hope you can take it from there ...
