 I've stumbled upon a frustrating bug in the FeynCalcExternal form of
D-dimensional Eps expressions. Essentially, the expressions behave
differently depending on how many of their indices are contracted with
four vectors (and which indices are contracted!).
 Attached is a short notebook file that illustrates the point
concisely. Has anyone else run into this?

 Thanks,

                    Mathematica-Compatible Notebook

This notebook can be used on any computer system with Mathematica 4.0,
MathReader 4.0, or any compatible application. The data for the notebook
starts with the line containing stars above.

To get the notebook into a Mathematica-compatible application, do one of
the following:

* Save the data starting with the line of stars above into a file
  with a name ending in .nb, then open the file inside the application;

* Copy the data starting with the line of stars above to the
  clipboard, then use the Paste menu command inside the application.

Data for notebooks contains only printable 7-bit ASCII and can be
sent directly in email or through ftp in text mode. Newlines can be
CR, LF or CRLF (Unix, Macintosh or MS-DOS style).

NOTE: If you modify the data for this notebook not in a Mathematica-
compatible application, you must delete the line below containing the
word CacheID, otherwise Mathematica-compatible applications may try to
use invalid cache data.
