Dear Statalisters,
I am enjoying “Stata/MP 12.1 for Unix (Linux 64-bit x86-64)” on my Ubuntu 13.04 64-bit pc. Speed and programming capabilities of Stata and features specifically designed for epidemiological studies are attractive. 
With the belief that reporting bugs by end-users is a great contribution for improving a software, I would like to declare a small, yet annoying problem with Stata I experience in my computer environment.
I open stata and -lets say- load database auto by “sysuse auto” command. At this point all the pull-down menus “File, Edit, Data, Graphics, ..” work properly. I may click on the menu “Data” and execute any command, such that I may generate a variable by executing the command “generate n = 1” via menu item “Create new variable”. All works properly till I call the “data editor” (ctrl-8) window. After this point, (opening and closing the data editor window) the pull-down menu item “Data” do not work properly. When I click on “Data” now, I get a single and not working item “activate”. All other items under “Data” disappear.

Is this a common problem and do anybody know the solution, if any exists?
