I'm just backing up Friedrich's and Gary's observations.  Same system
configuration (dual processors though), same symptoms - even the weird
display problems in Stata after generating the plots.

Friedrich,

Yes, the results/symptoms you describe are reproducible on my system with
the 
example you provided.  My system is similar to yours, so this may be of
limited 
help to the Stata Technical Support folks.

    Win XP Pro version 5.1.2 SP 1
    Stata/SE 8.2 for Windows - executable and ado's up-to-date

Additionally, the Stata session from which the example is executed
subsequently 
becomes unusable - with some odd display problems (Stata windows are 
incompletely displayed, command line characters appear as vertical bars as
they 
are typed in.)

The example does seem a bit extreme - effectively asking Stata to place
47000 
marker labels on the plot (though mostly superimposed).  The problems don't 
occur if the -,mlabel(freq)- option is removed from the graph command.

- Gary
