Hipolito has a problem with -jmp-. Inspection of the trace 
revealed that the error is produced by the -predict- routine, 
which is internally called by -jmp-. The relevant part of the
trace is:

    ---begin predict ---
    - version 7.0
    - if _caller()<=5 | "`e(predict)'"=="" {
    = if _caller()<=5 | "regres_p"=="" {
      _predict `0'
      }
    - else {
    - local v=_caller()
    - version `v'
    = version 8.199999999999999
invalid syntax

For some reason _caller() expands to 8.199... instead of 8.2 
on Hipolito's system. My guess is, that the problem will 
disappear once Stata is updated. Thus, my advice for Hipolito 
is to -update all-. Please contact Stata technical support if 
the problem persists.
