If you cannot upgrade R to 2.7.0, and Matrix to >= 0.999375-9 and spdep to
current, try method="spam". To benefit from "Matrix", you need a fully
updated system, running update.packages() frequently. The results are not
trustworthy, because the NAs are pushing lambda to the upper limit of its
interval. The default interval is OK for your setting - the weights are
