ylThat matches my experiments to date, and that
you have hit a limitation of the command. 

I think the logic is that you have categories
and that it would be too perverse to have 
a category you didn't want to label. 

But your axis is "really" numerical. 

I think you may need to knit your own using 
-twoway bar-, something like this: 

gen gene1 = gene - 0.1
gen gene2 = gene + 0.1 
twoway bar yl gene1, barw(0.2) 
	|| bar yr gene2, barw(0.2) xla(0(5)50)
