The Granger test of x and y with lag k tests the significance of the x
variables in
y ~ Lags(y, 1:k) + Lags(x, 1:k)
If x is already a lag of y (as in your example), this is not really
meaningful. In the "lmtest" implementation, it leads to collinearities.
I'm not sure what MSBVAR does to resolve that.
