Anyone using the penalised partial likelihood routines in survival5 should
update their version. 

A bug has been fixed in the S package: in coxph() models with penalised
likelihood and strata it was possible in some circumstances to get an
infinite loop or perhaps an incorrect answer. 

The new version (2.3) is on and will percolate through
CRAN in the next few days.
