Dear Eva,

Though I don't know the reason, this is not the only case when it happens.

E.g.:
sysuse auto, clear
twoway line l w, lw(0)
twoway line l w, lw(none)

both give you a visible line of the width ~1 pixel, rather than a
no-line as the help says:

============= QUOTE ==========================

linewidthstyle           description
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  none                     line has zero width; it vanishes

============ END QUOTE ===========================

Perhaps it works on other platforms? (not Windows?)

Regards,
   Sergiy Radyakin
