> You did not tell us the value of x.

x is an even integer (6,8,10). With x=6, you get

alpha=0.008333333,[default values],0.9916667

This is the reason for why the result I get sometimes is so odd.

Sorry for not being specific. I guess the statistic I'm testing is quite
continuous: I'm actually bootstraping the difference in the loglikelihood of
two nonnested model, where the dependent is always the same one, but the
independent is transformed in different ways (raw "linear" value, log value,
or power transformed value). As I'm comparing more than two transforms it
comes the need to adjust the confidence levels (I might also include other
transforms with a perceptually relevant meaning).
