That flag should be set if (and only if) your format has a split() that returns the ciphertext with case unified (to lower or upper, I think we normally use lower). So the raw format with hex encoding could/should unify case while the Cisco version must not do that (since it would ruin the base64).

Magnum, I'm not using it inside Cisco, only on raw. In order to 
understand why I have doubts, take a look at the attached file. All of 
them have a proper split().

Ok, I know, my name is also in the list.

Thanks for the clarification.
