[R] Problems producing quantreg-Tables

Hi Folks,

I've got a question regarding the 'quantreg' package maintained by Roger 

I tried to produce LaTeX tables using the longtable and dcolumn options 
as decribed in the manual, but the function latex() doesn't seem to 
react on _any_ other options than 'digits' and 'transpose'.

To reproduce these results the following minimal example may be used:

fit2 <- 
# This code produces a table with _no_ caption
latex(fit2, caption="Engel's Law")

I already tried to use different versions of the package but this 
problem seems to be persistent. The usage of latex() should be correct 
since I adapted it to the vignette (p. 6, 

I'm using R 2.12.1 with 'quantreg' v4.53 on Windows XP.

I hope anyone can help?

Best regards,
Jan Henckens
