[Limdep Nlogit List] "maximum iteration" and "EFF command" in frontier model

I run Battese and Coelli(1995) model in the stochastic frontier model.
I have two questions.
(1)
In the BC model, the command, ";Maxit = 100" does not work.
The maximum iteration always reach 51.
(2)
the command ";Eff = u" does not work, and thus I cannot create the variable 'u' after regression.
Are these some technical errors in Limdep, or Are these commands not allowed in the stochatic frontier model?
I coded it as follows.
sample ;all$
frontier ;Lhs=Y; Rhs = t, X1, X2;
;model = BC
;pds = T
;rh2 = one, X3, X4
;maxit = 100
;keep=y
;eff=u$
(3)
Since, BC model is not truely panel data model, I tried the following alternative using Truncated normal.
After regressing, u gives all the same value, so that I can't calculate Technical efficiency as " TE (it) = exp(-u(it)).
Here, "(it)" is for panel specification.
sample ;all$
frontier ;Lhs=Y; Rhs = t, X1, X2;
;model = T
;rh2 = one, X3, X4
;keep=y
;eff=u$
I appreciate any replies.
Thank you.
