Summary 0000322: FIXED: crash in lsfitnonlineariteration function
Description ap::ap_error when bad values specified in vector of parameters being fitted. When c(2) at line 40 is 1.5 all is ok, when it is 5.5 there is a crash.
Additional Information Looks like this issue was fixed, but I'm not sure.

The error is caused by target function which has too wild gradient, which shoots algorithm too far from starting point, which in turn leads to overflow. More precisely, algorithm tries step about 1E24 in magnitude so it raises overflow on the second attempt to calculate target function.

The only way to solve this problem is let algorithm restrict its steps so it won't cause overflow in one step. It will be implemented in the upcoming release, which will feature new L-BFGS/Levenberg-Marquardt API and new optimization algorithms (CG and bound constrained CG).

Fixed. Maximum step can be specified, so if your function have exponents inside which knocks current point too far, you can call SetStpMax() to guard algorithm steps.
