[R-sig-ME] glmmADMB fails to fit poisson data

If you look at the code for the negative binomial model in glmmadmb you
will see that it
initially fits the
log(Y_i+1) transformed data. This is by far the most stable model
numerically and good for
getting initial parameter estimates.
However for the Poisson case the code never got around to writing itself.
I'm sure the code will rectify its oversight in good time.
