[BioC] LumiBatch: problem when renaming samples

Hi all, this seems like a bug to me, but please correct me if I'm doing 
something wrong. If I rename the samples of a LumiBatch object, I can no 
longer subset them by name (with numbers it still works). Here's an 
example, followed by my sessionInfo.


# This works

# But if I rename the samples
sampleNames(example.lumi) <- gsub("0","",sampleNames(example.lumi))

# It no longer works

#Error in example.lumi[, sampleNames(example.lumi)] :
#  subscript out of bounds
