Pasquale,

Please see point #2 of my original email.  All you've done is show us the output of the -hausman- command.  I had a specific suggestion regarding the options for this command that you should try, but you haven't told us if you've tried it.  Also, please reply to the list if you have a follow up question to this post, not to me personally.
