Quite. A price of writing this for -version 9- is that it doesn't
understand factor variables, at least the lazy way I wrote it. It
could be made smart enough to understand factor variables if it were
called under Stata 11 (up) but, sorry, that is not on my immediate
agenda. In this particular case

 regress mpg foreign price

is the same regression and avoids the problem, but categorical
variables with three or more categories would need the indicators to
be generated in advance.
