summary(x), where x is the output of lm, produces the expectedd display,
including standard errors of the coefficients.

summary(x)$coefficients produces a vector (x is r$individual[[2]]):
> r$individual[[2]]$coefficients
tX(Intercept)    tXcigspmkr        tXpeld    tXsmkpreve            mn

rather than the expected matrix like object with a column for the se's.

When I trace through the summary method, the coefficients value is a

I'm trying to pull out the standard errors for some rearranged output.

How can I do that?

And what's going on?  I suspect this may be a namespace issue.

P.S. I would appreciate a cc because of some mail problems I'm having.
