  1. Please tell us R Version and OS (OK, implicitly done that we are talking about R-1.9.0 on Windows).
  2. Please tell us which packages you are using (I don't know KalmanSmooth(), for example).
  3. Please try to specify reproducible examples.

Conclusion for a-c): Please read the posting-guide.

My hint is to try to debug yourself, at least *try*, starting eith calling traceback() right after the error appeared, in order to get a guess where the error really happens. Then look at the data that is passed to the function - and I'm pretty sure you will get at least an idea what goes wrong.
