In addition, this problem is discussed within 

http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/data/reshape3.html

Incidentally, it is a rather strong assumption that
programmers will give a program the name you think 
it should have. The name -rmedian()- was ruled 
out at the time -rmed()- was first written because 
the program name _grmedian.ado was not 
compatible with the 8.3 filename.ext limit 
imposed by DOS and (if I recall correctly) Windows 3.1. 

-findit row median- finds more than -findit rmedian-.
