[R] randomForest error

I'm using the random forest package. One of my factors in the data set contains 41 levels (I can't code this as a numeric value - in terms of linear models this would be a random factor). The randomForest call comes back with an error telling me that the limit is 32 categories.

Is there any reason for this particular limit? Maybe it's possible to recompile the module with a different cutoff?

	thanks a  lot for your help,
	kind regards,
