Ah, now it all makes sense!  I checked my config and it looks like I had 
been using a substring match because it would not match otherwise.  I 
also found that suffix statements failed, so I had to adjust for that as 
well.  Lastly, when I'd convert raw circuit-id or remote-id to ASCII, 
I'd always get an unprintable character at the end.  Now I know why.

Good info!  Thanks!
