not really, it looks like somehow the call to the function changes some
internal state. There are obviously thousands of ways how a function could
achieve this, but if it is undesired I would guess it is an error in the
package. Which package are your talking about? Something you wrote
yourself? Then it would be best to send the relevant part of the package
file so we can have a look at it. If you manage to extract the minimal code
fragment that shows the unwanted behaviour your chances to get a fast
answer will increase a lot...
