GEDcompare bug - dollar sign (and following chars) in notes disappear

+13 votes

if a note in the imported GED file happens to have a dollar sign followed by digits, then both will disappear during the GEDCompare process.

In other words the note "It seems that $75 went a long way" will be changed during the GEDcompare process into "It seems that  went a long way". I am guessing that the GEDcompare code is treating the [dollar sign + digits] as an undefined macro.

Other examples I have seen:

x $3.00 y becomes x .00 y

x $10.00 y becomes x .00 y

x $1000 y becomes x  y
