To many on this list, the correct way of doing 
stepwise regression is to not do it at all, see:
<http://www.stata.com/support/faqs/stat/stepwise.html>

There are still some people who think that it has
a place in their toolbox. Basically, if that is your
position then it is indulged as long as it is useful,
but it is discarded as soon as you run into problems 
like the ones you report.

Hope this helps,
Maarten
