Tags case sensitive in gateway tag change scripts v7.8.1

any reason why tagpaths are case sensitive in the gateway tag change scripts? They properly evaluate when using the “check tag paths” tool. I dont remember this being the case in version 7.6 and before. I also I dont recall any other area that case sensitivity is an issue with tags.

This is the error I see:

10:18:34 PM TagChangeScriptExecutor Error executing tag change script. Tag event received for unknown property. Path: Testtag, property: Value
