[R] Incomplete Output from lmer{lme4}

I'm still relatively new to R, so my apologies if this is covered somewhere. I've been running some mixed-effect models in R using lme{nlme}, but read in Faraway's recent book, Extending the Linear Model with R, that lmer in package lme4 is a much improved version. I tried using this approach, but the output for the fixed effects doesn't report a p-value or the degrees of freedom (unlike the examples listed in Faraway's book, which I tried and got the same incomplete output). Any idea how I can get the complete output?

In a related problem, I've been having trouble with the lines and abline in the graphics package. Occasionally, they fail to add the requested line to the figure, but R doesn't return any error (it's as if executing the command does nothing). I've replicated this problem with code and data directly from R texts such as Crawley's Statistics: An Introduction Using R, so I don't think it is operator error (but it could be). Any ideas?
