It is a "feature"  - the manual and help both tell you it will happen.
You can still get labels and weights together by overlaying two scatter
plots, e.g.

twoway (scatter price mpg [fweight=weight]) ///
    (scatter price mpg, ms(i) mlabel(make)), legend(off)

Dear Statalisters

I am trying to produce a weighted scatterplot which includes labels for
each point.  But when I use the -msymbol- option, the weighting seems to
be removed.  A silly example:

sysuse auto
scatter price mpg [fweight=weight]
scatter price mpg [fweight=weight], mlabel(make)

The first scatter command weights the points, the second does not.  Is
this behaviour a "bug" or a "feature", or am I missing something
obvious?

I am using Stata/SE 9.2 for Windows
