in addition, if your model is not correctly specified, you
might obtain missing values in the variance-covariance
matrix. Then these standard errors cannot be calculated,
hence, se, p and cf are missing.

Here's one circumstance. If the estimate
of the standard error is 0, then by
an obvious sequence t, P and the limits
are all indeterminate. It's perhaps arguable
that in that circumstance the se should be
shown as 0, but either way the practical
message is the same.
