I am having some trouble with -unabcmd-. The help-file of -unabcmd-
states that: ``If commandname_or_abbreviation is a valid command,
unabcmd returns in local r(cmd) the unabbreviated name.'' However, the
example below seems to show that that isn't the case for -reg- (short
for -regress-). The same is true for -mlog- (short for -mlogit-).

. unabcmd l

. di r(cmd)

. /*as expected*/
. unabcmd reg

. di r(cmd)

. /*I expected regress*/
