That's what I thought, but there is no fisher.test variant in gmodels. There is CrossTable, which calls fisher.test in its print method, but as far as I can tell, that is the usual one from stats.

At any rate, it would be useful to know what the table looks like. If has a huge number of rows or columns then

(a) it could be the result of a coding blunder
(b) be quite meaninglesss to attack with a fisher exact test
