Re: st: predict returning incorrect values for mu following glm
Both Enzo Coviello <email@example.com> and poker buddy Paul Dickman
<firstname.lastname@example.org> 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.
