I recently updated to Version 1.3.18 (1202) After updating, I have been receiving warning messages for hundreds of entries: " possible runaway string started at line xx" I note that this issue was discussed previously: http://www.mail-archive.com/[hidden email]/msg02985.html but it doesn't seem that a solution was offered. Thanks! Darby I've copied an entry below that causes the problem: @article{bertrand2004msw, Abstract = {Most papers that employ Differences-in-Differences estimation (DD) use many years of data and focus on serially correlated outcomes but ignore that the resulting standard errors are inconsistent. To illustrate the severity of this issue, we randomly generate placebo laws in state-level data on female wages from the Current Population Survey. For each law, we use OLS to compute the DD estimate of its {\"}effect{\"} as well as the standard error of this estimate. These conventional DD standard errors severely understate the standard deviation of the estimators: we find an {\"}effect{\"} significant at the 5 percent level for up to 45 percent of the placebo interventions. We use Monte Carlo simulations to investigate how well existing methods help solve this problem. Econometric corrections that place a specific parametric form on the time-series process do not perform well. Bootstrap (taking into account the autocorrelation of the data) works well when the number of states is large enough. Two corrections based on asymptotic approximation of the variance-covariance matrix work well for moderate numbers of states and one correction that collapses the time series information into a {\"}pre{\"}- and {\"}post{\"}-period and explicitly takes into account the effective sample size works well even for small numbers of states.}, Author = {Bertrand, M. and Duflo, E. and Mullainathan, S.}, Date-Added = {2008-09-22 13:02:03 -0400}, Date-Modified = {2008-09-22 13:04:15 -0400}, Journal = {Quarterly Journal of Economics}, Keywords = {differences in differences}, Number = {1}, Pages = {249--275}, Publisher = {MIT Press}, Title = {How Much Should We Trust Differences-in-Differences Estimates?}, Volume = {119}, Year = {2004}, Bdsk-File-1 = {YnBsaXN0MDDUAQIDBAUGBwpZJGFyY2hpdmVyWCR2ZXJzaW9uVCR0b3BYJG9iamVjdHNfEA9OU0t leWVkQXJjaGl2ZXISAAGGoNEICVRyb290gAGoCwwXGBkaHiVVJG51bGzTDQ4PEBMWWk5TLm9iam VjdHNXTlMua2V5c1YkY2xhc3OiERKABIAFohQVgAKAA4AHXHJlbGF0aXZlUGF0aFlhbGlhc0Rhd GFfECUuLi9Eb2N1bWVudHMvcGFwZXJzL0JlcnRyYW5kMjAwNGEucGRm0hsPHB1XTlMuZGF0YU8R AZwAAAAAAZwAAgAADE1hY2ludG9zaCBIRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAL4XPFhIKwAAAAgZyBFCZXJ 0cmFuZDIwMDRhLnBkZgAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAhU26xP1IBFBERiAAAAAAAAEAAwAACSAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGcGFwZXJzABAACAAAv heCqAAAABEACAAAxP2ARAAAAAEAEAAIGcgAA9WoAAPVmwAAYhEAAgA/TWFjaW50b3NoIEhEOlVz ZXJzOmRhcmJ5amFjazpEb2N1bWVudHM6cGFwZXJzOkJlcnRyYW5kMjAwNGEucGRmAAAOACQAEQB CAGUAcgB0AHIAYQBuAGQAMgAwADAANABhAC4AcABkAGYADwAaAAwATQBhAGMAaQBuAHQAbwBzAG gAIABIAEQAEgAyVXNlcnMvZGFyYnlqYWNrL0RvY3VtZW50cy9wYXBlcnMvQmVydHJhbmQyMDA0Y S5wZGYAEwABLwAAFQACABD//wAAgAbSHyAhIlgkY2xhc3Nlc1okY2xhc3NuYW1loyIjJF1OU011 dGFibGVEYXRhVk5TR GF0YVhOU09iamVjdNIfICYnoickXE5TRGljdGlvbmFyeQAIABEAGwAkACk AMgBEAEkATABRAFMAXABiAGkAdAB8AIMAhgCIAIoAjQCPAJEAkwCgAKoA0gDXAN8CfwKBAoYCjw KaAp4CrAKzArwCwQLEAAAAAAAAAgEAAAAAAAAAKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAtE=}} ------------------------------------------------------------------------- This SF.Net email is sponsored by the Moblin Your Move Developer's challenge Build the coolest Linux based applications with Moblin SDK & win great prizes Grand prize is a trip for two to an Open Source event anywhere in the world http://moblin-contest.org/redirect.php?banner_id=100&url=/ _______________________________________________ Bibdesk-users mailing list [hidden email] https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/bibdesk-users |
Well, the answer is in the mail you quote and was also discussed in a recent post. You won't have it with data saved with any of the latest nightly.
