In order to determine what is the adequate estimator that should be used
don't need to perform any comparison with OLS2.

This is a bug that was already fixed. While connected to Internet type,
"update all" and follow the instructions. You will get the correct output
after updating Stata.
Dongshu also asked:

As I said before, you shouldn't perform the Hausman test using the
in this last example. However, the result that you are getting may occur
a well-specified problem. The reason for getting a negative test-statistic
the hausman test relies on asymptotic properties; with an infinitely large
the difference between the two covariance matrices is guaranteed to be
definite, but with finite samples that need not be the case.
