Some confusion here. As you say, an update is available dated 4 November 2010. 

If your executable still appears to be that of 30 September 2010, then I think you have not -update-d successfully or completely. 

Also, the kinds of messages you give strongly suggest to me an incomplete update -- and one that is independent of operating system. 

Regardless of that, the commands you give work fine for me on a Windows system and Stata executable and ados updated to 4 November 2010.

Thanks Phil for checking. The error appeared on

Stata/IC 11.1 for Windows (32-bit Intel)
Born 30 Sep 2010

All the components are up to date.

I already reported the issue to Stata Technical Support, but it would
be useful to know if anyone else with the same system is facing the
same problem.
