I don't know if it really qualifies as a "bug" per se, given that it apparently took this long for anyone to come up with a chain of decisions that led to uncovering this behaviour, and the solution of filtering the results through an additional measure (or using the clunkier-in-this-instance construction of an IfCondition) is only a "problem" for people who share my fetish for minimal code. The optimal solution might be to edit not the software, but the manual page describing IfMatch.

I'm not sure if what you said is connected to my experiences here (about measures that have a string value of "" behaving differently than other measures in regard to IfMatch and Substitute), but just throwing this here as well, just for your awareness.
