st: -corr()- problem in -reg3-
I estimated a system of simultaneous equations using 3SLS via -reg3-
which, by default, assumes the equations are correlated. I then wish
to investigate the consequences if the correlations are restricted to
zero. I did this by adding -corr(independent)- option to -reg3-. To
my surprise, the resulting error covariance matrix is not diagonal as
it should be (advertised on p.308, Reference Manual [N-R]).
Am I missing something here? I know for my original purpose I can
apply 2SLS using -ivreg- to each of the equations, but I am wondering
why the -corr(independent)- does not work as advertised.
The following code demonstrates the issue.

global demand "(qDemand: quantity price pcompete income)"

reg3 $demand $supply, endog(price)
mat list e(Sigma)
reg3 $demand $supply, endog(price) corr(independent)
mat list e(Sigma) /* should be diagonal */
