Summary0002043: objects named "Your..." don't capitalize property at the beginning of sentences; objects named "your..." do
DescriptionWhen an object is created with a name beginning with "Your...", its name will appear in lowercase even at the beginning of the sentence. When it is created with a name beginning with "your..." it will be capitalized properly.
Minimal Source Text To Reproduce
Lab is a room. 

Your hat is in the lab.
your coat is in the lab.

Instead of examining something: say "[The noun] isn't interesting."

test me with "x my hat/x my coat".
Additional InformationOutput:

Lab
You can see your hat and your coat here.

>test me
(Testing.)

>[1] x my hat
your hat isn't interesting.

>[2] x my coat
Your coat isn't interesting.

I suspect that in some sense the proper behavior would be for "Your hat" to be capitalized throughout, as if it were a proper-named thing whose name began with a capital Y. This is what happens if we create a thing called My Romance, for instance. But the routine for creating the printed name puts "your hat" in lowercase.

Checking the index, the objects created are "Your hat" with printed name "your hat" and "your coat" with printed name "your coat."
