George Vega Yon (g.vegayon@gmail.com) and others reported that Stata
for Windows was behaving differently from Stata for other operating
systems with respect to break key processing when break had been
set off in a piece of code:

We will change Stata for Windows to no longer display this
message and to retain the information that the break key has
been pressed.  This change will occur in a future update.

The original reason for the message in Stata for Windows was
to be informative to users who were confused when they would
press the Break button or a key combination indicating "break"
at a time when Stata had break set off.  Users could be puzzled
that Stata didn't seem to respond to "break" in such a situation.
