st: suest issue

Dear tech support

I am using Stata/SE 8.2 848041153, up to date.

I am puzzled by what -suest- is doing when the routine generating the estimates is -ivreg-. Even when ivreg is invoked to estimate an ols regression (with no instruments), use of the 'pscore' option (which merely generates OLS residuals in this case) causes the suest results to wildly differ from those of suest after regress--standard errors off by a power of 10 or so. Please see the do-file results. Whether I generate resids with predict or ivreg pscore I am using the same series, but suest after ivreg seems to be doing something very different than OLS with robust standard errors (which I believe it should be reproducing, or nearly so, in this case).
