Hmm.  The help is indeed pretty opaque, isn't it?  I tried
the following:

x <- rnorm(300)
f1 <- arima(x,order=c(1,0,0),seasonal=list(order=c(0,1,1),period=6))
coef(f1) # Which gave:

f2 <- arima(x,order=c(1,0,0),seasonal=list(order=c(0,1,1),period=6),
coef(f2) # Which gave:
> ar1 sma1 
> -0.5 -1.0 

So this looks like it's doing the right thing .... ???

Printing f2 indicates that the standard error of "ar1" is 0, which
makes sense since it's fixed.

I hope this helps.  Perhaps someone who actually knows what they are
talking about will chime in.
