This question concerns problem 10.9 in Jeff Wooldridge's book Econometric Analysis of Cross Section and Panel Data. In this exercise, which I gave to some students in a course this summer, using Cornwell.dat students are asked to estimate xtreg, fe and xtreg, re and perform the hausman test. Using the old xthausman syntax the result is a significant test statistic (approximately 121 for a chisquared(11) rv). Using the newer hausman syntax the result is a negative chisquared statistic and warning about violation of assumptions.
I constructed the statistic from the saved results e(b) and e(V) and I got the same result as the newer hausman syntax.
I tried to look for the difference in the xthausman ado file but I couldn't see an obvious difference.

I would appreciate any help identifying the source of the significant difference between the xthausman and hausman results in this instance.
