Two versions of nouns in German Words list

I've mentioned this as a comment in another post, but wanted to reiterate it here. Many nouns in my German Words list have two entries, a capitalized version and an all lower case version. Most times these have two entirely different strengths. This seems like a pretty significant bug in the SRS algorithm for German if these are being counted as two separate "words".

and just to be clear, these are words that are very obviously nouns... i.e. "oktober" and "Oktober", "Vater" and "vater", etc...

Update: this appears to have been fixed with the roll-out of the new Words features. However, now all of the nouns are lower case. This is better than double words, but they should be capitalized.
