Thanks for the good example and sorry about the error. I've posted a
fix for Gls. Use the following to override the current version with the
fixed one:
source('http://biostat.mc.vanderbilt.edu/tmp/Gls.s')
I've also changed the default na.action to na.omit. For some reason
model.frame doesn't work with the output of the Hmisc package's more
comprehensive na.delete function when used with Gls.
