What are your data like? What is the sample size, and what are your
variances like, and how big are the individual cells here?

What is your *exact* code for PROC GLIMMIX? I'm used to
PROC GLIMMIX working pretty well for binary dependent variables.
Why do you have to get starting values for NLMIXED? (If you're
desperate, try something simple like proc mixed for that.)
