Line for the server...

" When people do this, they are implicitly saying they  
don't want any help from the many folks on Statalist who use a non-MS  
operating system.)"


And even the windows users have to tweak those paths to their needs, so
paths should be avoided regardless of OS issues...

Unless I misunderstand your example (which the exchange below  
suggests it may fail the Statalist FAQ dictum: "Say exactly what you  
typed and exactly what Stata typed (or did) in response. N.B.  
exactly!"), it looks to me that you are not using your named graphs  
in your -graph combine- and -grc1leg- commands, but rather (old?)  
versions you have saved to disk.  If so, this could yield  
unanticipated results.

(As an aside:  why hard-code Windows-type paths into such a simple  
example?  It is completely unnecessary, even if you are -saving()-  
the graphs.  When people do this, they are implicitly saying they  
don't want any help from the many folks on Statalist who use a non-MS  
operating system.)
