I was seeing the same troubles as Stephen Jenkins saw after getting the 
last batch of ados (30 Sept) and the latest executable (26 Sept). I've 
been -discard-ing all day, since I'm writing some ado files. I've even 
stopped and restarted Stata twice.

Turns out the problem had been that I'd backed up the Stata folder with 
an old version of Stuffit, so some long file names for some of the 
graphics classes had become corrupted.

So... if you're seeing troubles even after -discard-ing or restarting 
Stata, you might try pulling your out of Stata's folder (along 
with whatever else you may have put there), reinstalling, updating, and 
then moving everything back.
