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!
