If you could give us a snippet of input data,
as well as the function and the 10 or so lines preceding and following 
it, that returns a single-element list,
we could probably help.  Or better yet, write a new function that's very 
simple that just displays the behavior you don't want.
It sounds like you have a lot of code, though, and since you know where 
the problem is occurring it's easier if you give us an excerpt,
the cliffs notes version, if you will, than for one of us to read 
through your code.
