[R] Extracting labels for residuals from lme

Dear R-helpers,
I want to try to extract residuals from a multi-level 
linear mixed effects model, to correlate with another
variable. I need to know which residuals relate to
which experimental units in the lme. I can show the
labels that relate to the experimental units via the
which gives:
604/1/0 -1.276971e-05
604/1/1 -1.078644e-03
606/1/0 -7.391706e-03
606/1/1  8.371521e-03
610/1/0 -6.361077e-03
610/1/1 -1.090040e-03
646/1/0 -1.696881e-03
646/1/1 -6.396153e-03

But, I cannot figure out how to access the labels for 
each row in this table. names(unlist(ranef(fit0)[3])) 
and labels(unlist(ranef(fit0)[3])) both give the result
"side.(Intercept)xxx" where xxx is simply the row number
of the data frame in the lme. I want to be able to access
the unit identities (604, 606, 610 and 646 in the above
table). Could someone tell me how to get them?

Many thanks, in advance,

PS, I am using R 1.9.0 on a Windows NT platform
(though I don't suppose it makes any difference).
