Hi all,

when testing the new improvements in the new 1.7.0-version I stumbled 
over the following:

Error in eigen(matrix(c(0,.3,2,.9),2,2)) :
         LAPACK routine DGEEV gave error code -13

[1]  1.3458236 -0.4458236

            [,1]       [,2]
[1,] -1.1436890 -0.9760443
[2,] -0.7696018  0.2175718

My R-version
[1] "R version 1.7.0, 2003-04-16", running on Debian PC.

Anyone who has a clue why LAPACK refuses to solve the eigenvalues?
