see #987
if weights were None, then it used the model.weights, which was in some cases the wrong shape or the wrong content.

This is broken for WLS if exog is not None, but weights is None.
It is also broken for OLS, because weights in OLS has full length. (refactoring ? IIRC it was scalar 1. before)

This PR fixes the weight handling, but doesn't address the formula support in #987

@josef-pkt josef-pkt changed the title from BUG: fix weight handling, fails in some cases, see 987 to BUG: wls_prediction_std fix weight handling, see 987 Apr 14, 2014

needs unit test, but then should be merged soon.

handling formulas in #987 can go into new PR


I don't find any unittests for this. I thought it's tested through influence_diagnostic but messing up the numbers doesn't raise any test failures.
