That's a pity. We had hoped we had made this problem very unlikely in recent versions of limma.
summary( dKa.RG$R[,6] )
summary( dKa.RG$G[,6] )
summary( dKa.RG$Rb[,6] )
summary( dKa.RG$Gb[,6] )
to see if there are any problems with your data.
Other than that, I have no suggestions for a work-around at this time.
