Could it be that Crash is (or was) hiding inside profile.do or some other do or ado file? I added these lines to my profile.do:

program define hello
display "Hello, Rich"
end
program define mylist
list, sep(8)
end

and both the -hello- and -mylist- commands then work from within Stata. However, neither shows up when I use the -which- command. So, maybe you should look at profile.do and/or do a search of all your do and ado files to see if -crash- is defined within them.

Incidentally, -hello- and -mylist- continue to work even after I type -clear- or -discard-. I thought they would go away. So, it seems like any little shorthand commands you want could be defined in profile.do.

I've seen a lot of ado files that define programs within their programs -- do these routines continue to hang around after the ado file has finished, or what? Could they be called separately, e.g. if -myado.do- defined a 2nd program, -myotherado-, could I then make a direct reference to -myotherado- from within Stata?
