Ouch!  Hope she is feeling better soon.  Have a nice holiday!

If anyone else cares about stata...  It seems to work out-of-the-box (no
changes to ESS needed).  However, the scrolling is horrible.  The first 
of info comes out fine.  Then, you get a --more--.  However, hitting return
only gives you one more line!  So, just hold it down.  It wants you to hit
the space bar to get another whole page, but the space bar just gives you a
space.  And, there is some
backspace garbage coming to the buffer.  Did I say it works?  I mean
it should work, but you'll have to change some settings or something.
Maybe somebody who actually knows stata should give it a try since
there may be stata settings involved too.  When I get a project that
requires stata, I'll investigate more myself... 
Stata is now officially supported :o)
