Hmm. Those calls should be equivalent in that version so I will look
into why they aren't.
At present I am involved in hand-to-hand combat with that code trying
to determine why the calculation of the Laplace approximation for the
glmer methods is not correct. I thought I had it working but on
further checking I discovered that I don't. Don't use that version
for glmer for a few days.
