[Rd] Failing lm-tests due to extra 0 in scientific notation?

Please let me clarify. When I said "is there a way to change that," I
meant, does anyone know why R would respond that way, and does anyone have
any suggestions as to what I can do or what I should investigate to get my
compilation to conform. I did *not* mean, "can we change the reference." I
apologize for any unintentional implications.
