st: Factor variable notation vs. hand made dummy vars

Hi all,

I cannot replicate the model 

. sysuse auto, clear
. tab rep78, gen(d)
. logit for mpg d2-d5

with factor variable notation. I tried

. logit for mpg ib1.rep78

but results differ. Can anybody explain why?

(Note as an aside that

. logit for mpg d1-d5

reproduces the factor variables solution, but normally I would not
specify the model this way)
