```This works, but it throws a meaningless error first:

NMinimize[{x + y, x >= 5, y >= 5,
3*x >= 5*y, {x, y} \[Element] Integers},
{x, y}]

\!\(\*
RowBox[{\(NMinimize::"incst"\), \(\(:\)\(\ \)\), "\<\"\\!\\(NMinimize\\)
was unable to generate any
initial points satisfying the inequality constraints \
\\!\\({\\(\\(\\(\\(\\(\\(-3\\)\\)\\\\ \\(\\(Round[x]\\)\\)\\)\\) + \
\\(\\(5\\\\ \\(\\(Round[y]\\)\\)\\)\\)\\)\\) ? 0}\\). The initial region \
specified may not contain any feasible points. Changing the initial region or \
specifying explicit initial points may provide a better solution. \
ButtonFrame->None, ButtonData:>\\\"NMinimize::incst\\\"]\\)\"\>"}]\)

{14., {x -> 9, y -> 5}}

Perhaps somebody out there can explain why this error message is "a good thing"?
