Same problem on my end! The example from the manual does not run, indeed.
Stata chokes on the name of a temporary variable which is for some reason
".". When -unab- goes to work on this variable, it returns the error  ".
invalid name". Weirdly enough, both versions of Stata seem to use the same
version of dotplot: 

*! version 3.5.3  25may2005

Betreff: st: Dotplot and bar option

Dear Statalist,

sysuse auto
(1978 Automobile Data)

dotplot mpg, over(foreign) nx(25) ny(10) center median bar
. invalid name
r(198);

However, the same command in Stata 10.1 does not give an error message
and produces the dotplot as shown on page 360 of the online Stata 11 [R]
manual. Removing the -,bar- option shows the dotplot without the bars.

Any suggestions as to why the bar option is causing a problem would be
appreciated.

Cheers, Garry
