Subject:Re: Pdox suddenly wants quotes

Maybe it's because of the CamelCase object names. ISTR that lower case 
was fine without quotes but upper case and camel case had to have quotes 
because Pdox object names defaulted to lower case. Not 100% sure but 
give it a try. Maybe you flipped a "insensitive compare" switch?
