st: question about ds command

I have a question on the function of ds related to the following:

forvalues x = 1/50 {
g q_`x'_test = 1
ds *_test
** displays the list of q_1_test - q_50_test perfectly **
local a = r(varlist)
disp "`a'"
** DOES NOT Contain all variables.  list is truncated after q_25_test q_ **

I'd like to accomplish putting a long list of variables with using "*_" into a local macro (e.g., everything with that has the suffix _test).
