Dear All,

The problem was on behalf of the user with the data structure. I ran
some recursive checking with my data and indeed there were mistakes in
the data. Not necessarily mistake  but rather trying to consider
certain variables "time invariant."  The complexity of the unbalanced
panel set just makes the trouble much harder in terms of trying to get
certain variable to be "time invariant."

In conclusion, I was able to successfuly ran xthtaylor with unbalanced
panel data.
