Alexander Tsai <act2@case.edu> stated he was having trouble with 
-estimates table-, to which I responded:

After looking at Alex's data, it turned out to be number 3. and a bug in
-estimates table-'s keep() option when used with variables from named
equations.

We've fixed the bug and will include it next ado update.
