Hi, Prof. Bates (and others),

It seems that in the latest version of lme4 from CRAN or R-forge the 
weights argument does not work:

w <- abs(rnorm(nrow(sleepstudy)))
fm1 <- lmer(Reaction ~ Days + (Days|Subject), sleepstudy)
fm2 <- lmer(Reaction ~ Days + (Days|Subject), sleepstudy, weights = w)
Error in mer_finalize(ans, verbose) :
   Calculated PWRSS for a LMM is negative
