st: RE: Flat or discontinuous region encountered! Help
On #1, the likelihood depends on the model
and the data. Therefore, you must
change one or both of those to make
any difference here.
On #2, the estimates may look identical
to the precision printed, but -ml-
may still be climbing, or trying to climb.
