I have tried to "set linesize" to 80 for every Stata session via my
profile.do, but find that unlike other options, the linesize remains at the
Stata default. Manually resetting linesize via "set linesize 80" within a
Stata session does work. Is there any reason that I should not be able to
resize linesize via profile.do?

My profile.do is as follows (note that all other options shown are working):

set varlabelpos 10
set linesize 80
if _caller() >= 8 {
  window menu clear
  window menu append submenu "stUser" "&Meta-Analysis"
  window menu append item "Meta-Analysis" "Of Binary and Continuous
(meta&n)" "db metan"
  window menu append item "Meta-Analysis" "Of Effects (&meta)" "db meta"
  window menu append item "Meta-Analysis" "Of p-values (meta&p)" "db metap"
  window menu append item "Meta-Analysis" "Cumulative (meta&cum)" "db metacum"
  window menu append item "Meta-Analysis" "Regression (meta&reg)" "db metareg"
  window menu append item "Meta-Analysis" "Funnel Graph, metan-based

  window menu append item "Meta-Analysis" "Funnel Graph, vars reordered
