The comparison returns true.
**Build Date & Platform:**
Debugging the app and inspecting the variables will show that they appear to be the same. I did notice that if you copy/paste the variable values into a text editor you will get this: http://screencast.com/t/6HlhqtBvhHQ
== is an ordinal comparison, i.e. character by character.

You probably want a culture-aware comparison.
