I guess wildly that the problem you got is a variant of the "feature" I mentioned earlier. -twoway function- is just using those observations for which d1 == d1[1] & d2 == d2[1]. Either way, some kind of artefact is not surprising. As I emphasised earlier, -twoway function- regards just one variable as (independently) variable, namely what is plotted as x coordinate.
