I don't see how these are hitting…. There isn't a + in there. 

If we had +'s in the packet and not the sig I'd suspect normalization. But it's the other way around, and I'm not aware of any of the engines normalizing the string to match…

Which rev of the sig are you seeing these with? Which engine if you can say?

Congrats on the win!!!
