This is also hard to diagnose, and you can't contact Stata's
tech support for this, as -ice- is a user written program. 
So, you need to look for some pattern in your data that 
makes the model unidentified for particular observations.
However, before you do that, did you check that you only 
looked at the observations where _mj > 0 (as -ice- leaves
a copy of the original data, with missing values, behind
as _mj==0)?

Hope this helps,
