I'm trying to add a text box to a graph that has 2 y axes with different scales. I can add the text to a single graph, and I can add the text to a graph with 2 y variables if they are on the same axis, but when I add a second y axis I get a mystifying error message. I've replicated the problem below using the auto.dta dataset; commands and log are below. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks,
Brian

text() option invalid, specified axis pair (1 1) not in graph

r(198);

end of do-file
r(198);

I tried this last graph command and it worked fine for me (Stata/SE 9.1).
