Thank you for your bug report.

Please note that most of miplib2010 instances are very hard while glpk
lacks of some important classes of cutting planes.

Mps file for this mip (as well as for some other mips) has a
non-standard bound indicator LI in the BOUNDS section. Glpk considers
corresponding integer variables as binary ones that leads to incorrect

This may happen because of inefficiency of the clique cut generator. Now
the generator is essentially improved (will appear in a next release).

This is a non-crucial error detected by glpsol on exit. It happens
because of a memory leak bug in the proxy heuristic routine. Hope this
bug will be fixed in a next release.

These errors happen because of very large right-hand sides and column
bounds that make the instances badly conditioned. Sorry, glpk is not

See comments for triptim1 above.

Thank you very much.
