When I ran your example I got a very different error message, 
which was actually much more informative. After making the 
corrections suggested in the error message, -parmest- work 
perfectly fine with -mlogit-.

So, it seems to me that the problem is that you are using an 
old version of -parmest-. This is why it is crucial to 
specify where you found a user written program: there are 
often multiple version floating around in cyber space. Often 
the one on SSC is the most recent.
