Is it possible that no one noticed this? And if yes, why did stata not fix it yet?
It is a feature, not a bug. A lively discussion of this began with the thread at

My own "If I ruled the world" preference is given at

But, since I don't rule the world, I've learned to live with Stata's way of doing things. It really isn't too hard to humor Stata on this and it would be far too hard for Stata to change now.
