weird, indeed. No idea. Is the whole dialog affected, or only a particular 
region of it?

Well, true. I was thinking, we can't possibly offer individual "save-boxes" 
for all the data in the lm-object, and so I kept it really frugal, 
deliberately. After all, going from fitted values to residuals is not so 
hard... (When I did my first steps in R, the hardest part in that area was 
figuring out how to make sure input and fitted values remain paired up in case 
of NAs - but the plugin does handle that).

But on second thought, all other info in the lm-object is either stuff we 
already print to the output, or a copy of data that was fed into the model as 
input. And residuals are important enough to provide them really conveniently. 
Now in SVN, and we'll probably prepare more bundles for testing, soonishly.

Now I'll just have to work on making the <saveobject> element somewhat 
smarter, but that's probably something for after 0.6.2.
