  PS I may be miscommunicating here.  To try to be clear:

1. ADMB produces spurious error messages when tpl2rem'ing specific
"simple" TPL files.  My R2admb code attempts to filter these messages out.

2. In some versions of ADMB (not the one I am running), using "-s"
provokes a warning message that "safe mode" is deprecated. In its
current version, R2admb uses  'safe mode' by default (i.e. adding the
"-s" flag to the argument list: should it not do that?), so this warning
came up when Motoki ran simple.tpl through R2admb. The version of R2admb
that I posted a few days ago treated this as an error and stopped; I
have since added code to R2admb that treats any message from ADMB with
the string "warning:" in it as an (R) warning rather than error.

  I'm not quite sure which set of errors Dave is addressing.
