  This question is too vague (and non-reproducible) for us to
answer.  Please try reading the posting guide and
http://tinyurl.com/reproducible-000 and reposting at 
r-sig-mixed-models at r-project.org (a dedicated mailing list for
mixed model questions).  What values are you making greater?
What are the variance components?  How do you expect them to be
and how do you know you're right?  Please help us help you ...
