-levelsof- was -levels- was -vallist-. 

That is, a user-written command called -vallist- was rewritten as
-levels- which was then adopted by StataCorp within the life-time of
Stata 8. In Stata 9 the name was changed to -levelsof- because the name
"levels" seemed too good to use on that command. 

My guess is that it was imagined that the name might reappear for a
different purpose as part of the factor variables project. 

-levels- and -levelsof- had, and have, the same functionality, so any
other guesses are off target.

Replacing it with -levelsof- made it work!
