```This is related to an ongoing thread on computing Transpose (and other
functions) of MatrixForm objects. There should be a better answer, but
here's one in the meantime:

data = Array[{# + Random[], # - Random[]} &, {100}];
z = Regress[data, {1, x, x^2}, x, RegressionReport -> CovarianceMatrix]
X = CovarianceMatrix /. (z /. MatrixForm -> Identity)
X[[2, 2]]

This also works, but NOT when Ted Ersek's suggested fix for MatrixForm is
installed:

X = CovarianceMatrix /. z /. MatrixForm -> Identity
