Thanks to Kit Baum a new update of the -ldecomp- package is now 
available from SSC. This update fixed a bug, which resulted into 
too much intermediate output.

-ldecomp- decomposes within a logistic regression the total effect 
an explanatory variable into a direct effect and an indirect effect 
trhough an intervening variable. For example, children from higher 
social classes are more likely to enter college, and part of this 
total effect of class can be explained by an indirect effect 
through academic performance in high school, as high class students 
tend to do better in high school than low class students and those 
students that do better in high school are more likely to enter 
college.
