Thomas Speidel <[email protected]> reports that -graph box- with more
than one yvar and with the option -over()- fails with an error message if you
have previously turned off variable abbreviation, -set varabbrev off-.

-graph box- is indeed not fully compliant with the new ability to set variable
abbreviation off.  The error occurs only in the specific case of more than two
yvars combined with the -over()- option.  This will be fixed in the ado
