```Dear all

To make my problem more on topic I would like to ask about weird results
from segmented fit, despite of Bert's warning.

Here is my data

temp <- structure(list(V1 = c(0L, 15L, 30L, 45L, 60L, 75L, 90L, 105L, 120L,
135L, 150L, 165L, 180L, 195L, 210L, 225L, 240L, 255L, 270L, 285L, 300L,
315L, 330L, 345L, 360L), V2 = c(98.68666667, 100.8, 103.28, 107.44, 110.06,
114.26, 117.6, 121.04, 123.8533333, 126.66, 129.98, 134.1866667, 139.04,
144.6, 152.08, 161.3, 169.8733333, 176.6133333, 181.92, 186.0266667,
188.7533333, 190.7066667, 192.0533333, 192.9933333, 193.3533333)), class =
"data.frame", row.names = c(NA,
+ -25L))

Here is the fit.

library(segmented)
plot(temp\$V1, temp\$V2)
fit <- lm(V2~V1, temp)
fit.s <- segmented(fit, seg.Z = ~ V1, npsi=2)

which is wrong.

If I take example from web, the result is OK.

set.seed(12)
xx <- 1:100
zz <- runif(100)
yy <- 2 + 1.5*pmax(xx - 35, 0) - 1.5*pmax(xx - 70, 0) + 15*pmax(zz - .5, 0)
+  rnorm(100,0,2)
dati <- data.frame(x = xx, y = yy, z = zz)
out.lm <- lm(y ~ x, data = dati)
o <- segmented(out.lm, seg.Z = ~x, psi = list(x = c(30,60)),  control =
seg.control(display = FALSE)
)
plot(dati\$x, dati\$y)

What am I doing wrong? Is there a bug in segmented? BTW, if I change column
names in temp to x and y, segmented found correct fit.

names(temp) <- c("x", "y")
plot(temp\$x, temp\$y)
fit <- lm(y~x, temp)
fit.s <- segmented(fit, seg.Z = ~x, npsi=2)
