Martin--
You seem to have diagnosed at least part of the problem, and a
workaround might be possible by replacing every instance of "`file'"
with `"`file'"' in outreg2.ado and replacing outreg2 with outreg2_mh
and then saving as outreg2_mh.ado (i.e. replace double quotes with
compound quotes and then rename the program by appending your
initials).  But I do not use -outreg2- (from SSC), so I have not
tested the workaround, nor done any additional diagnosis.
