Dear Kostadin

You could give us the data (after all there are only three studies) so 
we can run it through a different package or you could look at the code 
for omni and see where it is computing sqrt(var.T.agg.tau) and how it 
computed that in the first place.

And you could turn off HTML in your mailer as otherwise your mail can 
get corrupted.
