Thank you Mollie, Dave and Hans for your replies and help.
As Mollie pointed out, the problem was simpler than I imagined. Just
in case this is helpful for anyone else:
I was using the latest stable release of glmmADMB (0.5-2), which I
mistakenly thought could handle 2 random effects (maybe it can, but
not in the way I was specifying the model). I've now tried the alpha
release (0.6) in linux (I think it doesn't work on windows and didn't
work for me on a mac), and it seems to be doing what I want it to do:
incorporating 2 random effects to my glmm, like so.
glmmadmb(dur ~ 1 + (1 | group) + (1 | id), data = dat, family =
"nbinom", easyFlag = TRUE, verbose = TRUE)
No more MAX_NVAR_OFFSET problems.
Thanks again and sorry for the confusion.
All the best,
