I cannot reproduce your problem. Can you change the example
below such that it produces the behavior you reported?

*-------------- begin example ---------------
sysuse auto, clear
local title "Database Analysis"
forvalues i = 1/5 {
    scatter price mpg if rep78==`i', ///
            title("`title'")         ///
            name(gr`i', replace)
*--------------- end example ----------------

Hope this helps,
