st: -ttest- (repost)

I am not sure whether my previous message on -ttest- got posted or not (did not receive any replies on what seemed a simple comment)...

It seems that the default -ttest- (equal variances assumption) and the -ttest- with the option 'unequal' give the same test statistic. It appears that the first one is in error (ie, does not use the pooled estimator). Can someone confirm?

(the -ttesti- seems to be fine)
