hi all,

I try to combine horizontal box blots underneath each other
by using the -xcommon- option, but they do not line up. 

Here is an example for what I try to do:

. sysuse auto, clear
. graph box turn, over(rep78) name(g1, replace) horizontal
. graph box turn, over(foreign) name(g2, replace) horizontal
. graph combine g1 g2, xcommon cols(1)

The problem might be that in case of horizontal plots the "yscale" is 
along the x-axis. Therefore I also tried out 

. graph combine g1 g2, ycommon cols(1)

which doesn't work either (Stata SE 9.0 for Linux, born on 05 Jul 2005).

I can imagine a solution with reshaping the data and applying the 
-by()- option instead of the -graph combine- solution, but do you know 
an easier one?
