CT1EXE is sending the following:

CT1EXE>APU25N,TCPIP*,qAC,CT1EXE,PRTVHF:;ct1exe-l *080158z5240.86N 
\00907.12Wl030/035 LINK EM CALDAS FRE 74.4 LUSOFONA

These two objects always follow one another, so the second is the one  
findU sees.

findU ignores case, I'm guessing UI-View does not and sees these as  
two separate objects.
