Doug -

we are managing to trigger, both on R 1.1.1 and R 1.2.0 (proper
versions of NLME), the following:

>  warnings(model1)
Warning message:
Singular precision matrix in level -1, block 1 Error in cat(list(...), file, sep, fill, labels, append) : 
	argument 2 not yet handled by cat

suggesting either an "inappropriate" use of cat(), or a problem with
how we are running lme().   Thoughts, suggestions?  We can provide
sample code to create this warning again, if needed.

(Estimates are still "looking right", but we'd like verification that
something's not broken...).
