My general experience has been that when there are multiple copies of a program, the SSC version tends to be the most current (although that is not guaranteed).
What we had in outreg2 was an atavism, the unexpected appearance of a primitive trait after several generations of absence. With several versions of the program floating around, a throwback happens sometime, especially if you are mixing the codes.

Darwinian selection does not seem to be working here, though, probably because no self-replication is involved. I wonder if .ado files can be made to act like a macro virus and if Bill G. ever wake up in the middle of the night worrying about it.
