and this problem was not there in your previous version of ESS
(and *same* version of Emacs) ?
Can you confirm?  If yes, which version of ESS did not have the
above problem?

I'm sorry I can't be of more help for now, since we don't have
Stata, so 'M-x stata' errors out even earlier for me.

Can other Stata + ESS users comment on this?
