I am fascinated. I can accept the argument that suppressing aliased values is a valid behavior of the program. The defense of the inconsistency between the two displays surprises me.

Yes, Brian, I checked. That's why I offered the option of an inconsistency. I do believe strongly that the coef section of summary and the coef function should give identical results.

I still think the inconsistency is a bug. I think the author of the print.summary.lm did the right thing by showing the requested coef for the x variable and giving it a missing value.
