You might try debugging it further with traceback() and debug(). It's

pretty difficult to pinpoint the cause from the information you give.

In particular, what is in "text" at the point of the crash? My first

guess was that it was parse having trouble with the argument length,

but apparently not:

*> x <- (cbind(r.logic.interests, r.logic.morality,
*

+ r.logic.enlightened, r.logic.capacity,

+ r.logic.mediate) ~grouptype)

*> parse(text=deparse(x))
*

expression(cbind(r.logic.interests, r.logic.morality, r.logic.enlightened,

r.logic.capacity, r.logic.mediate) ~ grouptype)
