[R] error handling in R/ lapack routines

I just did a Google search for "lapack error codes" and got several
hits. However, I don't know if a translation of "error code 17" would
really help you.
Have you tried "fn" as a stand-alone function? If yes, have you
tried including a "cat" or "print" statement in it, so it prints the
value (and maybe the arguments) before it actually returns it? If optim
is going to run more than a few seconds, I have "fn" print the value it
returns. If it returns NA. I see that, etc.
hope this helps.
