I just took the auto data and renamed some of the variables to y,
y1, a, b, c, and d, and then followed the steps you mentioned.
Everything worked fine -- there was no error produced.

First check that you have updated to the latest update (though I
don't think that this should matter in this case).  If you can
then reproduce the problem, please send, if possible, your
dataset and log file that demonstrates the problem to  If that does not resolve the problem,
then email me and I will look further into it for you.
