I am automating a bunch of commands in a do file, so I can rerun the do file, just changing the argument.

If I have a:

drop km*

in my do file, the first time thru, it fails because it can't drop it.

No problem, since I can run as: do clusterk 4, nostop
and it goes fine.

However, if I rerun the next time thru as: do clusterk 6, nostop, it fails with error number 198,
saying that variable km2 exists. You can see that the drop works though, since it disappears
from the variables window.
