I am running a series of fixed effects negative binomial panel regressions (xtnbreg, fe) on different dependent variables. I have encountered some specifications that do not converge or cannot be computed due to discontinous regions before. However, one specific regression that worked fine suddenly returns

discontinuous region encountered
cannot compute an improvement

after I rescaled one independent variable. I didnt change anything substantial, just divided by factor 100 - how is that possible?

thanks very much,
