I can't give out the data (confidentiality) but I'll put up the model when I get the chance. The model's nothing special, just two random effects and some fixed effects predictors. The example in the manual is probably better  

The main thing is the fact that what is known to be a computationally tricky model works well enough without "fine tuning" to ponder turning its routine estimation over to non-methodologists.

Jay - it would be interesting to me (and maybe to others?) to see the model
command you used. I'm sure most on this list have great experiences with
stata - thanks for taking the time to write it donw.
