Right, and that was a bug, and it's now fixed in CVS and the
snapshots for Windows as OS X.
However, a puzzle remains: how are you arriving at the idea that the
constant "disappears" from the original model when you divide the
data by sqrt(x) to compensate for heteroskedasticity?
To get the adjusted constant you would do something like
series adjc = const / sqrt(x)
The result (adjc) will "disappear" (go to zero) only if the sqrt(x)
values are infinite, and I suppose it's safe to assume they are
