[R] Zelig: starting values for negbin

I'm running a negative binomial model in zelig and it's asking me to supply starting values for the coefficients. How do I supply these? Could I use the coefficients from the poisson model (which runs smoothly)?

> z.out <- zelig(postSpmtsQ ~ (ante62Q + ante08Q +
ante29Q + ante16Q) * Trt, model = "negbin", data = sprayS)
Error: no valid set of coefficients has been found: please supply starting values

I don't find anything on this in the documentation and would appreciate any hints.
