Sergiy Radyakin <serjradyakin@gmail.com> reported that Stata did
not find his profile.do file in the 'p' subdirectory of the
PLUS (c:\ado\plus) directory on his adopath:

Sergiy has found a bug and reported a quick workaround for it.
Stata does not currently look in the 'p' subdirectory for profile.do
as it searches across the adopath.  The workaround is to do as Sergiy
did and place profile.do in one of the main directories on the adopath.
We will fix this in a future update.
