On a different note, I have discovered that the -clear- command,
whether buried within an .ado file or entered from the keyboard,
will close any open dialog boxes and will depopulate all populated 
fields in every active user dialog box (i.e., ones that have been 
invoked and populated during the current Stata session).  Even if 
the -clear- is between a -preserve- and -restore- pair of commands, 
dialogs are not repopulated and the current dialog is not restored
to the screen.  

I have a question in to StataCorp on whether this was the intended
behavior (and I will report the response when I get one), but you
should consider this issue if your populated / active dialogs
suddenly depopulate or your current dialog disappears.
