st: geocode missing tempfile

I am using geocode (v1.2.0 from Stata Journal) to get lat. and long.
for some address data in a survey. This often produces the following
error:

geocode, address(street) city(city) state(state) zip(zip)
Geocoding 1 of 10
Geocoding 2 of 10
file C:\Users\masterd\AppData\Local\Temp\ST_00000006.tmp not found
r(601);

That file does not seem to exist in the directory. I checked all of
the addresses used, and they appear to be "geocodable" in Google
Earth. Similarly the following code:

set obs 1;
gen str56 home= "4905 Lakeway Drive College Station, Texas 77845 USA";
geocode, fulladdr(home);

produces the expected result:

home	geocode	geoscore	latitude	longitude
4905 Lakeway Drive College Station, Texas 77845 USA	200	8	30.55233	-96.24564

The error seems to be intermittent. Any ideas about what's going on
and how to fix it?
