Adding to Austin's list: For another explanation of the problem along with a different proposed solution, see J. Scott Long's presentation at

I view Long's approach as sort of high tech descriptive statistics. It will tell you if differences exist between groups, but it leaves open the question as to why the differences are there (differences in effects or differences in residual variation?) I find it kind of unsatisfactory in that it doesn't provide a stronger causal explanation of differences, but then again that is probably better than a causal explanation whose estimates are wrong.
