Sorry, still confused. If I dont have fpc's ready in my dataset (calculate
myself?) that means that R will use the weight of an individual for each of his
repeated observations. But is that then still correct? The "cluster" individual
is ignored and each observation of an individual has the same weight.

Thanks a lot.
