-venndiag- V 2.13 working as advertised on OS X 10.3.3. Options work
correctly for all shapes (circles are replaced by ellipses for 4 variables,
as advertised).
Works on my Panther PowerBook too. Stata/SE 8.2. But with some strange behavior.

One thing I did notice was that a "more" option comes up midway through the drawing of the graph when the default circles are used, and to complete the graph, you must deal with the more (hit space, since the results window will not come forward). But with the square options, it runs right through. There also seems a different behavior after that more, with regard to saving temp files.
