This was previously posted on 28 April

Why not? I guess because only a few 
kinds of rather basic comment seem possible. 

First, it is possible that your data 
are not suitable for this model. 
You need to think about that. 

Second, -nlogitrum- offers handles for 
varying the maximization process in using 
-ml- to fit the model, particularly important
when defaults run into problems. Those are documented
and explained in various standard places, e.g. 
documentation on -ml- and the Gould and 
friends book on the same area of Stata.
