There is a bug in the code. It will be removed in the next update. For now 
edit the code in localmoran.sad() (in mtlocalmoran.R in the source 
package, line 105) or a local copy (myfun <- edit(localmoran.sad)):

is: if (save.Vi) {Vi = Vi}

should be: Vi = if(save.Vi) Vi else NULL

which returns Vi if save.Vi is TRUE.
