The ASREML list is still not getting through to me.
There is an addressing problem we still have not sorted.
Your .pin file problem is a bug which will occur if you have only
1 or 2 fixed effects in the model. I've now fixed it in my code
which should be available on the website later in the week.
The problem is that it thinks there is an extra set of solutions in the
DENSE equations but they are not there and so the values are zeros.
There is no work around until I fix it.
Note that ASREML does not give the correct SE's for predicted values
when some of the effects are in the SPARSE part of the model.
You need then to specify !DENSE to put them in the !DENSE part
but that only works for some random effects and also seems to be broken at the
