Sabrina Di Addario <> is using -pweight-s and
-vce(jackknife)- with the seemingly unrelated bivariate probit model:

Sabrina found a parsing error in -jackknife- that is caused by the
multi-equation specification of the SU biprobit syntax.

The fix for this will be available in an upcoming ado-file update.

In the mean time, Sabrina can specify the -pweight-s inside the -vce()- option
(an undocumented feature).

	biprobit (y1=x1 x2 y2 u2) (y2 = x2 z2), ///
		vce(jackknife [pweight=weight]) cluster(clusty)
