Wouldn't think so, no...but this is 2012b here so anything's possible. 
Guess that raises question of which platform?  This is Win32 here...

I don't see why it shouldn't parse just fine unless there's a hidden 
character or something causing a mismatch in the comparison...can you 
retry using direct cut'n paste at command line and see if symptom 
stays/goes away?
