-bs- employs little red crosses to indicate a failed draw, but continues
afterwards. Yet I think there is information content in a failed
replication. Why did it fail? I would start there. You might also want to
experiment with the -capture- command inside the program called by
-simulate-.

Consider a -simulate- command that stipulates R repetitions. Suppose
that the nth repetition of -simulate- produces an error.  Is there any
way to make Stata simply run that repetition again?  If that's not
possible, is there a way to make Stata continue on to the next
repetition so that the the resulting dataset produces R-1 observations
(instead of the intended R)?

Thanks very much,
Rachel
