Richard makes an excellent point.  I also wonder if instead of -ivtobit- you
can use -qvf- (-findit qvf- to install).  I suspect many -tobit-
models that impose
censoring at zero in fact have a theoretically nonegative dep var, and no
censoring at all.

It looks like you have an extra comma before ll(0).

However, why even use this in the first place?  The package
description says "Stata 8.2 or 9.x users should use official ivprobit
and ivtobit." Updating from Stata 8 to 8.2 is free.
