One of the explanations for weird behavior only in relation to -ivtobit,
twostep- could be that the -e(depvar)- return value in Stata 11 contains two
variables while it used to contain only one in Stata 10.1. The manual for
Stata 11 still describes the -e(depvar)- as "name of dependent variable" (no
plural there), so clearly no change was intended. This issue does not seem
to affect the -mle- estimator. Running the code below in Stata 11 and Stata
10.1 shows this behavior clearly.

*************
sysuse auto, clear


ivtobit gear_ratio displacement /* 
*/ (mpg=length weight turn) [fw=rep78], /* 
*/ twostep ll(2.2)

di in r "`e(depvar)'"
*************

Let`s hope I have not overlooked something obvious, but this could easily
explain why -overid- chokes only on this particular command.

Betreff: Re: AW: st: RE: Overid error

I have the same version of overid:

. which overid
c:\ado\plus\o\overid.ado
*! overid V2.0.5 07jul2008
*! Authors C F Baum, Vince Wiggins, Steve Stillman, Mark Schaffer

I get the same error as you do on the auto.dta when estimating the ivtobit.

. overid
__00000D not found
r(111);

However, with Stata 10, overid worked on that particular command.

Weird.

J.
