Wow! That makes absolutely no sense. So you are saying the following
*shell* buffer prompt #1> stata
But, the following does not:
*shell* buffer prompt #2> /usr/bin/env stata
I sympathize with your plight, but if #1 works, then #2 must also work.
I guess this is an Ubuntu bug. Check the bug reports, and if you don't
see something similar, file one for your problem. I wouldn't mention
Emacs, ESS or Stata since they have nothing to do with it. Your problem
seems to be either in /usr/bin/env or something even more basic than that
like bash/kernel/demonic posession!?! Good Luck!
