Stata [sic] is innocent here. It is doing what -prvalue- 
tells it to. -prvalue- is, as you know but others may 
not, a program from the -spost- package from Scott Long and Jeremy 
Freese. I am not sure if either is a member of Statalist, 
so if you get no good answers to this, the next step may be 
to contact the program authors directly. 

Can -adjust- help with what you want?
