There is an over-arching point here. Many key programs have been
published through the Stata Journal but are also maintained elsewhere,
notably SSC.

In particular, several leading programmers such as John Gallup make
frequent fixes and small improvements to their programs.

For them, the lead time of the SJ (once every 3 months) is too long
and SSC or personal website becomes the website of choice as Kit Baum
generally puts stuff up very quickly (and he advertises when that is
going to be unlikely).

Having run the update I now get a *different* error earlier in the process.. (This also means that I don't know if the original error would recur because I don't get that far). The basic command sequence is:

The problem is that I most regularly have access to Stata11 so it would still be useful to figure-out what the problem is. My Stata 11 ado, executable and utilities are all up-to-date.
