st: True batch mode

When I try to run Stata in batch mode on Windows...

DOS> wstata /e do testfile.do

... it runs in the background, returning a new DOS prompt before the job is done. That's fine if I'm doing it manually, but I want to run Stata as part of a process, and the next step needs Stata to be finished creating its output before it starts. I suppose I could have Stata write some new file at the very end, but then if there's an error, that file will never get written. Ideas?

[BTW, the context here is Windows, version Stata/IC, but I need to extend to other platforms. e.g., looks like maybe this isn't a problem on Linux -- just don't put an ampersand?]
