ran two models fitting the same model to the same data. only difference is that one has no parameter bounds while the other does. here are the confidence limits for the two:

> summary(testNoBounds)$CI

lbound estimate ubound

testCI.parms[1,1] 0.2229001 0.6259667 1.0243803

testCI.parms[2,1] -0.4849764 -0.1423273 0.1882364

> summary(testBounds)$CI

lbound estimate ubound

testCI.parms[1,1] 0.1880914 0.463186 0.5739613

testCI.parms[2,1] 0.0000040 0.000000 0.2158373

from my calculations (see attached) the lower CI for parms[1,1] should be the same.

or did i do something stupid?
