As Richard Williams pointed out in an earlier response, there was a bug in
Stata's -update- command when version 8.0 was originally released. The bug has
subsequently been fixed but the only way to get the bug fix is to perform an
update.  This is not, however, a Catch-22 situation. All you need to do is
update your executable first. That is, type

. update executable

followed by

. update swap

You can then type

. update ado


. update all

to get the ado updates. After performing an update in this manner the -update-
command in all of its variations should work as advertised.
Great - that is easier than what I proposed before. Is there some way to include a note to this effect in new copies of Stata? Might avoid a lot of problems. Adding the above as a FAQ would also be good.
