Dear R people,

I am not sure if this is the correct place to tell about problems in evolving 
programmes, but it seems that the `summary.negbin' function of the excellent 
`MASS' library is now broken, and gives the following error message:

> summary(hm)
Error in summary.negbin(hm) : subscript out of bounds

`summary.negbin' calls `summary.glm' which seems to work and give the desired 
output like called there, but calls to `object["SE"]' fails (and later, if it 
would get there, `object["th.warn"]' would fail). The first entity seems to be 
now "SE.theta", and I did not find "th.warn" at all in my objects.

Really a tiny thing, and if I understood the behaviour correctly, easily to 
cure by the user herself.

For the record: these errors came in R 1.0.0 from the CRAN site rpm package 
for RH Linux 6.2 and with R INSTALLed VR_6.1-7.tar.gz from the same site.

cheers, jari oksanen
