I am running into the following problem.

- I use simult_ to simulate a model to the 3rd order for a large number of periods, with pruning, with all shocks set to 0, starting at the deterministic steady state (DSS).
- The simulation converges to a point where all variables remain constant. Let me call that point the stochastic steady state (SSS).
- I run simult_ again, without shocks, this time starting the simulation at the SSS (inputted as the first argument of simult_).

I would expect the simulation to remain at the SSS, but that is *not* the case. The end point does not match the initial point and there are some dynamics along the way. This does not seem correct – if the previous simulation (starting at the DSS) settled at SSS, then when I start at SSS, I would expect it to remain at SSS.

I believe this has to do with the pruning option, and in particular how yhat1,yhat2, yhat3 are set, but was wondering if anyone knows how to fix it.

Thank you!
