"(which as Martin indicates is a separate process under Windows)"

Does that mean that I can kill it separately, thus preserving my precious
main process which may hold important data? (Weird that I should ask Kit for
Windows advice, is it not :-) )

Stata update of   21oct2009   included (note points A,B):

   Stata executable, Windows

    22.  The Do-file Editor has the following new features and fixes:

         A.  New option "Replace all in selection" restricts the replacement
             all occurrences to the currently selected text.

         B.  When a "Replace all" was requested of a string, s, with a
string s1
             that contained s, an infinite loop happened.  This has been

         C.  "Balance Braces" under the "Find" submenu in the "Edit" menu
did not
             work if the close brace was the last character of the file.
             has been fixed.

         D.  "Match Brace" under the "Find" submenu in the "Edit" menu
             the section of code between the focused brace and its matching
             brace.  It now selects only the matching brace.

         E.  Syntax highlighting settings could not be restored to factory
             defaults.  This has been fixed.

         F.  When a line was selected by clicking on the line number, the
             selected line and the following line were both executed.  This
             been fixed.

         G.  Under certain conditions and when auto-indentation was enabled,
             Do-file Editor computed the wrong indentation length for the
             line based on the indentation length of the previous line.
This has
             been fixed.

Perhaps the Do-FIle Editor (which as Martin indicates is a separate process
under Windows) was imperfectly fixed...
