According to the manuals, after a -more- condition you press the space
bar to get the next batch of output.  When running DO files, I've found
that "double clicking" the space bar (twice, quickly) appears
effectively to "set more off", so the output scrolls continuously.  This
behaviour ceases at the end of the DO file.

I'm running Stata 11 on a Dell laptop under Windows XP.  The behaviour
may be an undocumented feature of Stata or some timing interaction that
causes the second key depression to appear "sticky" (not Windows "sticky
keys" feature).  Is this effect seen on other systems?
