OK, Thomas, but if one of the payees is set to match on name and the other to
match on listed names, I wouldn't have expected two totally different payee
names to match.

Yes, I know of that issue but here one was NPOWER and the other SEFTON
COUNCIL. I'm pretty sure I got caught out last month too and thought I had
made a mistake and incorrectly matched the items myself, but now I think I'm
only partially guilty for not thoroughly checking the alleged match!
