William Bishop ([email protected]) is experiencing some strange
behavior in Stata's Data Editor:

We have not had any other reports of such problems, but I suspect that
it is related either to faulty hardware or to a corrupt executable.
William should email a description of his problem, and information
about his system including the output of Stata's -about- command to
[email protected].  They will help him track down the issue.
