I was asked to report this error while running biomaRt. I believe it
meant report to the list and/or developer!
So here it goes!

> i2 <- getBM(  attributes[c(3:6,16,17,28,62),1], filters="ensembl_gene", values="ENSG00000090861", mart=snps)
1 Query ERROR: caught BioMart::Exception::Usage: Attribute dbSNP NOT FOUND
Error in getBM(attributes[c(3:6, 16, 17, 28, 62), 1], filters =
"ensembl_gene",  :
  Number of columns in the query result doesn't equal number of
attributes in query.  This is probably an internal error, please
