[R-sig-ME] false convergence (8) in glmer

The suggested (though horrible) hack to provide a greater number of
iterations (see digest-list: /Thu Jul 10 18:49:15 CEST 2008/)

.Call("mer_optimize", <failed_lmer_fit>, FALSE, PACKAGE = "lme4")

does not seem to work anymore. In previous versions it did.

Any suggestions on how to continue iterating, because I have an non-converged model after glmer ends its process.
It results in the following warning message:
In mer_finalize(ans) : false convergence (8)
