That's not a bug; just an example that can be improved. 

As -help marker label options- explains -mlabpos(3)- is the default, which here is not appropriate. As in some examples in the -stripplot- help, -mlabpos(0)- should be added to centre the symbols as desired.

Hi Nick,
thank you very much for your help.

I just got your -stripplot- command installed and it works fine except there seems to be a 
little bug when using the gen pipe = "|" symbol/string for the markersymbols.
In the following example one can see how the observations, i.e. the "|" are all shifted to the 

********* begin example **********
sysuse auto, clear
gen pipe = "|"
stripplot price, over(rep78) box(barw(0.3)) mla(pipe) boffset(0.3) iqr
********* end example ************
