I cannot reproduce that error, the example below runs as 

*--------------- begin example ----------------
sysuse auto
twoway scatter mpg weight, mlabel(make) || ///
       lfit mpg weight
*--------------- end example ------------------
(For more on examples I sent to the Statalist see: )

Are your .ado files and executable in sync?
Type in Stata:
update all
update swap

Hope this helps,
