I was able to work around this, but having 2 split functions, and then setting the proper pointer, when I set the unify case flag.

The existing dynamic certainly had this bug.  I simply took my new dyna-71 format, copied a single line 2 extra times, and set some upper case hex (same hex, just some chars upper case). The dynamic before the change found 1502, and after proper split and the bit being set, only 1500 were found.  So it is obvious dynamic has had this bug for a long time.

I will make some changes to make it 'easier' for the thin formats to have their own split function (some need one), yet still have access to the 'base' class split, to do the case unification.

Thanks for explaining the split and case-unification, even if it was not directed at my code ;)
