st: Comparing sureg with reg

Dear Statalist,

I have three equations with three different dependent variables and 45 independent variables. 
I ran a SUR model with the command -sureg-. The 45 independent variables are the same for all three equations.
The Breusch-Pagan test of independence shows that my dependent variables are not independent (p<.001).
When I compare the coefficients that I receive from -sureg- and -reg-, they do not differ at all. Only the standard errors differ, but only slightly.

Can anybody explain me what I am doing wrong here, I have no explanation why the coefficients do not differ at all? I know that this is the case when you only have dummy variables, but I have 30 dummy variables and 15 variables that are not dummies.
