I have so-far tried all ways of computing kendall tau significance (where there are ties) described here.

However, none of them works good, even for relatively large vectors. I think the problem is in general it seems that these methods tend to overestimate the statistical significance of data, so are there any alternative ways to compute kendall tau's significance? (at least get some degree of tie-adjustments), many thanks.
