David Jacobs <> has raised several issues
related to Stata10 on Windows. I will address his remarks inline

We have not had other reports of this behavior. If possible David should
try to determine what he is doing when this occurs so we can try to 
duplicate the issue. David should send his findings to

This could occur if the "Make windows float" checkbox is selected in the 
window preferences.  This problem was fixed in the last executable 
update.  David should type -update all- in the comamnd window, followed
by -update swap- when prompted.

We are unable to reproduce this problem.  David, please send a screen
capture of Stata and your Windows desktop to
Also send output from typing -query interface- in the Command window.

Recent files were added to the Dofile Editor in the last executable
update.  David should update as noted above.  We will add Shift+Ctrl+S
as a shortcut to "Save-As" in an upcomming executable update.
