(R 0.65.0 and earlier):

	Error: NA/NaN/Inf in foreign function call (arg 6)

which comes from the  lm.obj$coefficients  
(the last 3-way interaction coefficient is indetermined and accordingly NA)
argument passed to .Fortran("lminfl",...)  inside lm.influence.

The following is a simple correct patch

--- lm.influence.R	1999/08/13 06:44:12	1.5
+++ lm.influence.R	1999/09/15 15:32:11

+             NAOK = TRUE,# lm.obj$coef can have "structural" NAs
 	     DUP = FALSE)[c("hat", "coefficients", "sigma")]

However, closer inspection shows that this 6th argument 
(called `b' inside  src/appl/lminfl.f) is not used at all in the code.

Ross, can I eliminate it from the subroutine lminfl() altogether ?
