The issue here has to do with selecting lines from a do-file in the Do-file
Editor and selecting Do or Run to execute only the selected lines.  William
has discovered a bug where doing this results in Stata executing the entire
do-file instead.  This bug only affects Stata for Macintosh and will be fixed
in the next executable update.

You will be affected by the bug if you have a do-file open in the Do-file
Editor that has been saved.  If the file is unsaved or modified and you do or
run selected lines from the Do-file Editor, Stata will behave as expected.
