Both Enzo Coviello <enzo.coviello@alice.it> and poker buddy Paul Dickman
<paul.dickman@ki.se> have had trouble with predict after using -glm- with 
a user-defined relative survival link.

The cause of their problems is a bug introduced in Stata 9.  The bug 
affected cases where the global macro SGLM_p, used by -glm-, was not being
handled properly by -predict- when the macro itself was non-numeric.  This 
only affects cases where this macro is being used for non-standard purposes, 
for instance, to hold a variable name for population survival rates.

The fix to this bug will be available in a future ado update.
