When an OLS ist started with the gui and several independent variables are selected, my gretl gui removes all independent variables when I try to remove only the last variable in the list of independent variables. Selecting any variable of the list works as expected, removing only the selected variable except for the last of the list. One has to change the order i.e. move the last variable one up to remove it. (It can be quite disturbing if you forget that and set the lags again etc.)

I am using gretl 1.9.90 on Fedora x64 and time series variables.

    I can't replicate this problem. Could you please give a specific recipe for provoking it? (Preferably using one of the time-series datasets supplied with gretl.)

    Here's what I tried: opened Ramanathan dataset data9-7; selected OLS from the Model menu; set QNC as dependent variable; selected PRICE to POP as independent variables;
    then selected POP on the right and clicked the red Remove arrow -- only POP was removed. I also tried adding lags of some of the independent variables to see if that made a difference, but still couldn't provoke a problem.

    I don't see this behavior, either (November 2014 snapshot), and to be honest I find the report a little contradictory ("several selected ... only the last variable"). So I'm closing this.
    thanks,
