Yes, the problem really is the number of characters. Unfortunately in
my original model, the number of characters is doomed to exceed 244.
Of course, I could easily rename all the variables, and run the
-regoprobit models  again (I have more than one to re-run)..  However,
that would take a couple of days...Maybe Manos is right and a
modification of the ado file of mfx or mfx2 would do it. Is that

I think this is closer to what the problem is.  I changed Manos
example mfx2 command to

mfx2, m varlist(thisistomakethenamebiga)
at(thisistomakethenamebigk=0,  thisistomakethenamebigl=0) stub(mfx);

and I still got the error "warning: variables thisistomakethenamebigk
thisistomakethenamebigl in at() list not found in model". So, I'm
thinking mfx has problems when the list of varnames gets bigger than
244 characters and the at option includes vars outside the first 244
