[AniMov] cutltraj function error (adehabitatLT)

Hi all,

I'm working with GPS dataset from seabirds that include more than one trip
for each burst, and currently I'm trying to split then automatically in
sub-burst based on a criterion.

To do that I'm trying to use the function cutltraj from AdehabitatLT R
package. Previously I removed all positions matching an specific condition,
so now, after applying the as.ltraj function, my dataframe has ltraj class
and I can use the dt field values as criterion to make the split.
This criterion is so simple: time between two position > 3600  (units in
seconds). This time is enough to determine when the burst need to be

I applied it:

df <- cutltraj (depurelt, dt>3600, nextr = TRUE)

According to this, a logical vector (with TRUE when criterion does match)
should work for splitting.  If I check with the common datframe class, dt
field exists and it's correct, and the logical function dt>3600 run
correctly and I get a TRUE-FALSE vector.

However, when I run the function I got this error message:

Error in dt > 3600 :
  comparison (6) is possible only for atomic and list types

Since ltraj class is in fact a list object, I don't understand why I get
this error.

If someone have any idea why is this happening, please let me know.

Thank you in advance.
