[R] "False convergence" in LME

I tried to use LME (on a fairly large dataset, so I am not including it), and I got this error message:
Error in lme.formula(formula(paste(c(toString(TargetName), "as.factor(nodeInd)"), :
nlminb problem, convergence error code = 1
message = false convergence (8)
Is there any way to get more information or to get the potentially wrong estimates from LME?
(Also, the page in the NLMINB documentation, http://netlib.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/cstr/153.pdf, has errors in it, which makes it harder to check on what is happening.)
Thank you in advance!
