Jun Xu <mystata@hotmail.com> asks if there is a limit on the size of the
expression list accepted by -bootstrap-:

I was able to reproduce the problem and found a small bug in -bootstrap-.
Basically, -bootstrap- tried to save the expression as a label (in the dataset
it generates), but the expression is much larger than the 80 character limit
for labels.  An update to -bootstrap- should be available in the next ado
update.
