The problem you have supplied does not seem to be a MIP problem (no Generals
section).
Would you look into it again?
Actually I am suspecting a bug here that I ran into before, and patched glpk
for it. The problem is, that in case of numerical instability (that means
too big round off errors I think) the simplex solver tries to pivot on
elements that are supposed to be zero, but are not exatly zero because of
round off errors. This way the system runs (or can run)into an infinite
loop. If I could reproduce your error, I could see if my patch corrects it
or not.
Regards
Robert
