Stata (v11) gives me the following error:

I saw a post on this on Stata List from 2009 which says this bug will
be fixed in an update
(, but I
haven't been able to find an update.  Has this bug been fixed?

I've just tried commands that appear similar to me with no problems. The fact that you say "I haven't been able to find an update" and that you say you are using Stata (v11) rather than Stata (v11.2) make me wonder if you are clear on how to update. There is nothing you need to find. Just give the command

update all

and Stata will take it from there (assuming you have write access to your machine). If you do indeed have the latest and greatest version of Stata 11.2 and still have problems, let us know.
