I output my parameter values every time the PROCEDURE_SECTION runs.

deviations.  Have others had luck with this?

I searched the documentation for rescale and found this command line  
option on p 12-1 of admb.pdf

-rs if function minmimizer can’t make progress rescale and try again

Is this relevant? From the brief description, I couldn't tell what it  
would rescale.
If it is relevant, is there an equivalent line I can put in the
