-hpfilter- is a vipers' nest of problems, aired intermittently
on this list. It has many non-standard or poorly explained
or designed features -- by the standards of Stata now -- but the
immediate issue is not -hpfilter-, but that H is not a valid
time-series operator. That is, any variable name which looks like
is examined to see if "stuff" is a time-series operator.
Is H.lgdp a typo for H_lgdp?
