Hi Viritha --

it is unlikely a problem of too much data but rather version
incompatibility in installed packages. Tell us


after following


Since 'exprs' is just a matrix provide us with a reproducible example
using random data, exprs = matrix(<...>) where <...> is sufficient to
generate the problem on your system.
