Dear Prof. B. Bolker,

While working on one of my projects, I encountered the function glmer.nb that is a part of the package lme4 that you maintain.  As far as I can see, one can only obtain a variance-covariance matrix of estimated fixed effects using this function...Is there any way for me to obtain a full variance-covariance matrix that includes covariances between fixed effects and estimated variance of the Gaussian random effect?

 Thank you very much in advance for your help!
