[Rd] do.call Error for Function Not Present When Manually Called

The e1071 function naiveBayes gives an error when called by do.call, although it doesn't give any error if I call it manually.

Browse[1]> trainParams at classifier
function (x, ...) 
<environment: namespace:e1071>
Browse[1]> trained <- do.call(trainParams at classifier, paramList)
Error in names(dimnames(tables[[i]])) <- c(Yname, colnames(x)[i]) : 
  'names' attribute [4] must be the same length as the vector [2]
Browse[1]> summary(paramList)
        Length Class  Mode   
        925    -none- numeric
         37    factor numeric
verbose   1    -none- logical
Browse[1]> class(trainParams at classifier(paramList[[1]], paramList[[2]], paramList[[3]]))
[1] "naiveBayes"

What is the explanation for this ? I read that the behaviour of do.call is currently undefined and subject to change.
