That is normal (see for example the entry for -gllamm- in this
statalist glossary
<> (also
see the entry for jokes))

Sometimes it is possible to gain speed by -contract-ing your dataset,
and use fweights. This is typically the case when all the variables in
your model are categorical.

Hope this helps,
