I'm looking to analyze a large data set: a within-Ss 2*2*1500 design with 20 Ss. However, aov() gives me an error, reproducible as follows:

id = factor(1:20)

a = factor(1:2)
b = factor(1:2)
d = factor(1:1500)

temp = expand.grid(id=id, a=a, b=b, d=d)
temp$y = rnorm(length(temp[, 1])) #generate some random DV data
this_aov = aov(
	, data=temp


While yields the following error:

Error in model.matrix.default(mt, mf, contrasts) :

   allocMatrix: too many elements specified

Any suggestions?
