This issue about QIC just draw my attention today. This problem 
(variable name too short) has been fixed earlier. 

Also, the program has been updated to include the general case of the 
Negative Binomial Distribution recently, where the dispersion 
parameter can be any specific value. The program can be downloaded 
from SSC.

Cheers
