-areg- is a (outdated) way of doing a fixed effects 
regression. However, the trick of adding dummies in order
to estimate a fixed effects regression does not work in
non-linear models. The "classic reference" on this list
regarding this issue is:
<http://www.stata.com/statalist/archive/2003-09/msg00103.html>

If you want to do a fixed effects regression use -clogit-
instead.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
