Thanks for the report. The "glue" linking the argument selector to the
code that actually calls the nadarwat function had come unstuck. This
is now fixed in git; snapshots will follow.

I think this is an artifact arising from the fact that the
Nadaraya-Watson estimator is implemented as a function rather than as
a "command" (and so has a special variant of the argument selector).
This should be fixable too; I'll work on that today.
