Sorry for the delay in response. Arthur Gilmour (who the current ASReml code and normally answers these types of questions) is away until the 6th February.

It appears to be a problem in ASReml. I don't have any idea at present why it would be falling over at that particular iteration. The log-likelihood hasn't converged at that iteration, so it is not doing anything different to what it was doing in the previous iteration....

I could try to work it out before Arthur returns on Feb 6 if you could either
a) send your asreml input/data files to me at
b) run the job in debug mode (and send me the output)? If you are running asreml from the dos command line, you can go
ASReml3 -el {input filename}
If your input file was (say), it should create test.asl with all the debug information, which would be what you could send to me at The alternative way to do this is to add
!logfile !debug 2
to the first line of your .asr file.
