This is for StataCorp. If it were a feature, it should be available for
all operating systems. 

I repost a minimal example for the weired behavior and add, that I used
Stata/SE 10.1 for Unix, born 02 Feb 2009 on Linux 2.6.24-23-generic with
GNOME 2.22.3 (Ubuntu 8.04). 

--------------------------------------------------minimal.do
webuse nlswork.dta, clear

gen wage=exp(ln_wage)
su wage, de
drop if wage>r(p99)

sum wage, meanonly
gen wageclass = autocode(wage,32,r(min),r(max))
by year wageclass, sort: gen wageperc = _N/r(N)

sum wageperc, meanonly
replace wageperc = wageperc/r(max) * .90

gen lower = year
gen upper = year + wageperc

levelsof wageclass, local(K)
local width  = (`:word 2 of `K'' - `:word 1 of `K'')
twoway rbar lower upper wageclass, barwidth(`width') horizontal    
exit
