Hi Emanuele,
update svn and try now,
HTH, D.
P.S. IIRC you are deal with box-bounded problems, let me remember you
once again, that ralg (especially current implementation) handles it
very badly (especially when lots of active constraints in optim point)
in comparison to scipy_lbfgsb, scipy_tnc or algencan (all are available
from oo, requires scipy or algencan installed), these ones have very
appropriate specialized box-bound solvers.
Regards, D
