The lookup function recently dropped support for the case insensitive option
in changeset 30f54b3b9953.  However the input validation routine silently
accepts all unknown options without producing an error or warning.  Thus,
scripts which uses the 'i' option will not have any indication that the
underlying functionality has changed because 'i' is still accepted.  This can
happen even to the Octave code base where optimset, despite having been
configured to work with the new code, was still passing the 'i' option.  See
changeset 48cb431db87b.
