Hi, Jeff.

Thanks for the reply.

Additional questions...

Can you clarify what you mean by "ambiguous case insenstivie match" ?

Would hardcoding the file system filter driver somehow cause the "case
insitivie second #2" above to not happen/match? 

Should there be something in the fs trace output indicating which type
of match it is or isn't doing and the result? Or does that require
additional debugging (ie paid support)?
