Most likely the problem is a Stata matter of how labels are shown in the
data browser

Try in stata:
use xxxxxxxx (your file)
d
* check the formats
* set format for the variable with problems :
format  %9.0g x    (assume name is x)
browse

Works here for me. If the display format is too narrow for a given
variable, then the label is not showing correctly in browse, but does show
correctly at :
label list
or
tab
or
freq
of that variable.

If you still have problems send the rec+chk file as an attachment to
info at epidata.dk or indicate adress for download.
