the example shows the complete reverse.

If you have Stata 10 or 11, you would not be bitten by this problem in
the first place. If you did try it out on Stata 9.2, you would be
bitten. If you did try out on any earlier version, you would not be
able to run -ice- at all (Stata would freeze...).

Note too that the SSC description of the program is apparently in error. SSC says the program requires Stata version 9, when in reality it apparently requires Stata 10 or higher. Ideally, users should have the latest and greatest version of Stata, but programmers should also be careful that their documentation on program requirements is correct. If they aren't, then Kit should withhold the royalties they get from the sales of their programs on SSC. :)
