I asked tech support about this almost a year ago. It is an mlogit thing, other programs don't get to do that. The period (.), the dollar sign ($), and the colon(:) can't be used in equation names.

If you are having trouble with programs bombing because of illegal equation names, then check out

help _labels2names

Underscore is a legit character, so you might want to use that instead of dots.
