Sometimes from a .do file, using,

. display "whatever"

gives white result text, sometimes yellow. Anybody know why?

For example, in the following code:

levels region, local(levels)
foreach l of local levels {
display "-> region = `l'"
quietly anova area animal side side*animal drawing|side*animal ///
if region == "`l'"
test side / side*animal
test animal / drawing|side*animal
test side*animal / drawing|side*animal

The first time display runs (before the first ANOVA) the resulting text is white. Thereafter it is yellow. From the command line use of display "whatever" is always yellow.
