Kerry I agree with you. But I dont Know compute the MLE estimate for AUC 
and its standatr error.
Second I dont know MLE(AUC)/SE is normal so I dont konw wich test use.
Third I dont konw compute the correction is necessary because the test in 
same population.

If You explain me this topics I upgrade the funciotn with pleasure.

But same with a possible downward bias the function solve Roman problem...

Thanks in advance
