> The a-m would be in there 2 times.  With the patch, each of these would only be included 1 time.  Yes, the above user class values are contrived, but an easy to make mistake. The z likely should have been Z. But a user causing overlap is often easy to do, and the patch avoids this by ignoring adding the character values a 2nd time.
