st: parentheses don't balance?

Stata 8 on Win98, freshly updated. 
The following command was generated by using the overlaid twoway graph dialogue 
box, using the sysuse auto data.  It yielded an error message:  "parentheses do 
not balance"

I count 21 parentheses in each direction, ie 21 pairs.

Am I missing something?

And how could a command generated by a dialogue box (that is, by Stata itself) 
have an error in the parentheses?  I didn't type them in.   Must mean there is 
something wrong with the way the dialogue box works?

Thanks.
