st: -tabplot- and number of options limit

I am trying to use -tabplot- with 20 industry categories (which also happens to be the maximum permitted number of categories for the command according to the help file), but I get an error message that I have too many options (the default maximum number of options is 70 in Stata).  On the Stata FAQs, I see that one can get around the 70 option limit by using the * option in the -syntax- command (as in syntax[, opt1 opt2...*]), and when I took a peek at the -tabplot- ado file there indeed was a * at the end of syntax[].  So I am a bit puzzled why I get the error message.  Any thoughts?

And I want to convey a heartfelt thank-you to Nick Cox for -tabplot- and everything else he has generously shared with us Statans. :)

Best,
David
