Apparently some changes made to -tobit- have broken -dtobit-.

A lot of post-estimation commands got zapped in Stata 9 when Stata changed the way results from some estimation commands got stored (e.g. ologit). One solution is to use version control:

sysuse auto
version 8: tobit mpg trunk weight, ll(17)

Even if a post-estimation command has been very good about including version commands in its code, it is still at the mercy of changes made in the estimation command, so sometimes you need to use version control on it too.
