I have fixed a small bug in `mtable-ext`

that prevented asterisks from being printed for negative coefficients in mixed effects models output by `lme4`

. Thanks to Reinhold Kliegl and Martin Elff for pointing out the bug and for providing the fix. The updated code can be found below. However, I do want to warn users that the way the code calculates *p*-values is not strictly correct. For more information, see R FAQ 7.35; Doug Bates’ mailing list post and the ensuing discussion linked from the FAQ is a must-read for anyone using `lme4`

or estimating mixed effects models more generally.
