Equals equals not equals (see description)

Summary

Equals equals not equals (see description)

Version

FMP 12.0v1 (and previous)

Operating system version

OS X 10.6.8 (and previous)

Description of the issue

In the data viewer or a calculation field, enter a formula as follows:
"=" = "≠"

That's asking, is the equals character the same as the not equals character?  FileMaker returns the result as true (1).  I haven't found any other pair of symbols that calculate as equivalent (aside from lowercase and uppercase letter pairings); why would it do it for these two?

Expected result

Equals should not equal not equals.

Workaround

Exact ( "="; "≠" ) correctly returns 0.
