4. EROS1 results revisited

The two EROS 1 microlensing candidates have been monitored by EROS 2. The source star in event EROS -LMC -2 had been found to be variable (Ansari et al. 1995), but microlensing fits taking into account the observed periodicity gave a good description of the measurements. Its follow-up by EROS 2 revealed a new bump in March 1999, eight years after the first one 2. This new variation, of about a factor two, was not well sampled but is significant. Therefore, EROS -LMC -2 is no longer a candidate and we do not include it in the limit computation.
