If you don't specify the -predict()- option in -mfx-, then
-mfx- will use the default predict option of the preceding
estimation command. The default predict option for -xtnbreg-
is the linear predictor, so that is why you got the same
coeficients. The solution is to specify the -predict()- 
option or interpret the incidence ratios, which follow more
naturaly from count models.

Hope this helps,
