I haven't solved it either, but I have noticed something particularly
peculiar about this on my machine (XP, Stata IC):

- In Windows Explorer, "List" or "Details" view, the icon looks like an
Adobe icon.

- Switch to "Icons", "Thumbnails", or "Tiles" view, and the icon is a
Stata 11 icon.

Most peculiar.  Reminds of my favourite Windows haiku error message:

	Yesterday it worked.
	Today it isn't working.
	Windows is like that.
