Nicolas Debarsy <ndebarsy@fundp.ac.be> reported a problem with the -lpoly-
command:

>            _lpoly_work():     -  function returned error
>                  <istmt>:     -  function returned error

We were able to reproduce this behavior in Stata 12.  The bug will be fixed
in a future update to Stata 12.
