If you think that, send the dataset and your .do file to Stata tech support.

In my attempt at brevity, I didn't note that the variables are turned

correct case.  And the error is actually "regressor group not found"
My apologies for the erroneous description.

This seems like a bug.  It's replicated in stata 12.
