This comes down to the way that Kirk conceptualizes error versus the
Winer, Brown, and Michels approach.  For Kirk the error term is
subjects nested in x1#x2 while Winer, Brown, and Michels partitions
the nested error component into a number of pieces.  This is also the
approach used by SPSS when analyzing the data in the wide form.

In the approach that I suggested, anova y x1##x2 subject, the
residual for the model is just s|x1#x2.  In the end, I don't think
this is a matter of right and wrong rather it reflects differences in
how the error is parameterized.

Just to note: the repeated option does not change the model it only
provides additional information should the assumption of compound
symmetry be violated.
