Erasmo Giambona <e.giambona@gmail.com>: This is discussed by Stock and Yogo (reference given in the help file for -ivreg2- on SSC), among others. Basically, the matrix version of the first-stage F-test gives the smallest effect of the various directions in which the endog X vars are pushed around by excluded instruments Z. If two out of three endog X variables are strongly pushed around by Z, but one is hardly affected at all, you still have a weak instruments problem--and all of this is conditional on whatever other covariates are in the model, of course.
