Re: [Rd] (PR#13180) Wrong behavior of lines.survfit for conf.int="only"

Thank you. I was confused because survival was a standard (recommended) package, so I thought r-bugs was the appropriate place. I have contacted the maintainer of the package with this information. My thanks also to Peter Dalgaard for de-base64-coding my message; I have no idea how or why it got encoded that way. Additionally, this was meant as a follow-up to PR#13171. Both PR#13171 and PR#13180 can be considered dealt with. Please accept my apologies for messing the process up so much.

Note that survival is a contributed package: only the maintainer can alter 
it (or at least, if someone else does the change will get lost -- it has 
happened before).  So it is not useful to report on it on R-bugs (see the 
FAQ and the posting guide).
