I repeated my test with the colon removed from the post fix data, just in case!

However, it matters not a jot.

So, post fix data is completely stripped if there
are parentheses around a surname.

I have reported this as a BUG in Version 3.7.0

Problem Report 1482 - !"Parentheses around a name
a (wrongly) are stripped on input"

Sorry about the typo - it should be "are" before (wrongly)

The body of the report goes on to add the stripping of the post fix data, too.

Now is every one going to add parentheses around
a (married) surname of all women>? <lol>

Malcolm, I like the idea - far better than my
puny "UNKNNNN" where NNNN is the RIN of that married woman
