I can't reproduce it at the moment.  Maybe the language environment
(inadvertantly broken for a while on my system) had something to with
it.  But even with a similarly broken setting of LC_CTYPE I could not
reproduce the effect I had seen.

Anyway, it was certainly related to case conversion since binding
case-fold-search to nil made the strings be found again.  Maybe
something has changed in that area.
