Dear Kim,

Yes, I did the analysis step-by-step and I solved the problem by
analyzing first main effects, and after followed by interaction

I don't know why this problem appear in maanova. Sorry!

May be someone, with more expertise, in the Bioconductor mailing list
could be help us in these issues.

I hope this help you.
