Thanks for the suggestions.  The variables were mean centred (and the
variance couldn't be huge since the range of values were only from 1
to 7 at most).  I suspect the data structure might not be quite so
right for this, so I tried multinomial models with gllamm instead.  It
is now working ok with multinomial modelling, though I now have a
problem with getting intraclass correlations from them (will go in my
next message).
