When -estout- was written only up to 20 sets of estimates could be 
stored in Stata at the same time. Hence, estout has not been tested 
with numbers of estimates > 20. 

I made a few checks and observed similar problems as Radu. -estout- 
may break if the number of estimates gets large. I managed to isolate 
the problematic part of the code - and I think the problem is caused 
by a bug in official Stata. See my next message.
