Thanks for your email.  The iterate function should return GSL_SUCCESS
or an error (if it can't make progress) so I believe the example is ok
(the test functions return GSL_CONTINUE).

If you're seeing GSL_CONTINUE return values from
gsl_multifit_fdfsolver_iterate I'd be interested to see the test
function, thanks.
