[S] Bootstrapping: error in quantile

Dear beautiful S-Plus users,

I'm having a problem with the calculation of BCa percentiles using
bootstrap with limits.bca function. I'm using S-Plus 4.5
under Windows '95. Occasionally I get the following error message:

> Error in quantile: Missing value where logical needed:
> if(any(probs < 0 | probs > 1)) stop
> ("Probabilities must be between 0 and 1 inclusive")
> Dumped

Is this perhaps a problem encountered before by someone? limits.bca
seems to produce an incorrect call to the quantile function. Anybody
got an idea what could be the cause?

Thanks for your help.
