2) In the "Data Browser" (for sysuse auto), I would expect "Filter by
expression" condition t<20 to work, but Stata responds: ""Filter by
expression:" is invalid". Condition trunk<20 works fine. Seems like
here Stata can't unabbreviate variable names like it does everywhere
else.

Sergiy, I tried that and I think that the hitch might be because there are two
variables in the auto.dta data set that begin with *t*.  Filter-by-expression
with tr < 20 works fine.  As does tr < 20 & tu > 35.  I avoid using variable
abbreviations for reasons like this--I've been stung too many times.
