Nick, thank you for your help with this.  The results from applying
the trace are shown below.  Unfortunately, this was not super
informative for me, though I have never used the trace before.  Any
thoughts on what may be going on?

Thank you,

unrecognized command
end matwrite ---

The "unrecognized command" message appears to come from Stata not finding _matwrite. At least it is easy to generate that message by calling a non-existent routine. Perhaps _matwrite isn't in the path or perhaps it doesn't have execute or read permission.
