HX 2.17 quirk -- R4 (REXX) only accepts uppercase words (DOSX)

R4 (REXX) on Win32 behaves normally. But in DR-DOS + HX 2.17 (and presumably also with FreeDOS), it seems to only work with uppercase. (DOSBox isn't a problem either, so it's not a valid comparison there, sadly.)

echo parse version ver ; say ver > test.rex
echo PARSE VERSION VER ; SAY VER > test2.rex
r4 test.rex

Apparently not! It seems to work there fine. So I dunno why. Weird. :-|
