This may be tangential but: I tried testing your solution in Stata
11.2, and the macro fix worked fine, but the program crashed on the

with error r(198) "Invalid syntax."

This is a bit strange since the call to xtreg_fe.ado performs fine in
11.2. I don't understand why xtreg_fe_modified would crash, since the
two are identical except for the lines included above -- which ought
not to have any functional relevance.

OK. The "hidden" would be illegal in Stata 11 but legal in 12. Like I said before the command seems to be a weird hybrid of Stata 6 and Stata 12 syntax.
