Yuck, I do not know what were we thinking to design the behaviour
like *that*.  Or it may be simply buggy.

I can understand the first one (i.e. "trailer.$name.$var" try to
match $name as case insensitively) but not the second one.  There is
not an single rule for "b" trailer, and we should be getting the
same behaviour as the third line, i.e. the key not involved in
rewriting is passed as-is.
