In an ongoing discussion related to creation of new variables with specified a
correlation structure, Austin Nichols <austinnichols@gmail.com> noted that 
"-corr2data- should probably exit with an error" when the rank of the specified
matrix is not equal to the number of variables in the given varlist.

This will be fixed in a future Stata update.
