I have also found this problem, although rarely, using Windows XP. In most instances Stata was running from a do file. It would occasionally skip lines or show errors where there were not really errors. In some instances, retyping the line sufficed to correct the problem. Rarely, it was necessary to restart Stata.

It was my impression that this problem arose from Windows memory corruption or the text editor seeing a corrupting non-printable character. I emphasize this occurs extremely rarely. It is not clear to me whether any of this is Stata problem.

Dear all,

I don't know if I'm the only one experiencing this but Stata sometimes
complaints about inexistent errors, for instance, reading arguments or
local macros (in ML check). I also found my self running two identical
programs (I checked character by character) and they would run in
totally different ways (one would converge and the other not).
But the question that I'm really interested in is: Is this stata's
problem or my problem?
