Hi all,

Consider the following function:
f = Compile[{{x, _Real}}, x-x^2];

When I call:
NMaximize[f[x], x]

I get the error:
CompiledFunction::cfsa: Argument x at position 1 should be a machine-size real number.

Does anybody knows how to fix that? I assume NMaximize is passing a symbolic x to the compiled function. Note that setting:
SetSystemOptions["EvaluateNumericalFunctionArgument" -> False];

solves the problem if I use FindMaximum, but not if I use NMaximize. Any advice would be extremely appreciated. Thank you very much!
