Studio 2009 - Multiterm search upper/lower case problem

I'm not sure when this started to happen, but I started to notice it a few weeks ago.

I have ten to twenty Multiterm termbases with about 100000-150000 source terms and about 500000 target terms (in this case, the size does not matter, except for my ego;-) collected during many years.

*Previously* the search (I mean the automatic search while translating) did not care if the term in termbase (or the search term) started with upper or lower case letter.

Now, the search for a term stops after finding first match, whether in upper or lower case.

So, I may have the term "strength", which in lower case means what it means in Finnish, but in upper case there is a match, e.g. in Photoshop terminology. The search stops after finding the first hit.

Please, don't advise me to combine upper and lower case terms under only one term. It is like going back to stone age with only one stone.

And yes, all termbases are checked for search (the problem exisits even inside one and only termbase).
