Whether or not -predict- is allowed after a command can be seen by
looking at -help <command> postestimation- where <command> needs to be
replaced by whatever command you want to look at. There is no such
help file for -lpoly-. Another hint that this may be problematic is
that -predict- is for use after estimation commands, which leave
things behind in e(), while the helpfile for -lpoly- says it leaves
things behind in r(). These two things suggest to me that you cannot
use -predict- after -lpoly-.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
