Font selection case dependent

Font selection case dependent
So, I've been using the GIMP for a while, but just upgraded to 2.10. Something I haven't noticed before is happening with font selection--specifically: font name matching is case dependent.

I have a font installed named "Proto" and I would expect that when I start typing in the font selection text area either a "p" or "P" would display fonts that start with either "p" or "P"--but it doesn't work that way. Yesterday I was working on a poster and went looking for the Proto font by typing "p" (lowercase) and got zero results (it's a new system, with only a few fonts installed). It took me a bit to figure out what the problem was.

Is this behavior expected? Because IMO having to match the case of the font name is not a feature. I may remember the names of most of the fonts I regularly use, but I'm not likely to remember whether the font designer used a lowercase or capital as the first letter of the font name...
