Betreff: RE: st: AW: RE: Error ivreg2 "must have ranktest version 01.2.02 or
geater..."

In any case, I think it helps to emphasise that the problem was multiple
versions of -ranktest- lurking on Wiebke's system, as I originally
suspected.

I'm not sure this point got across originally, because Wiebke's original
response was that "it still does not work".  But this is because the
multiple versions were still there.

I think the argument for making the default behaviour of -which- to report
**all** versions is getting pretty convincing.
