Same here; that and the '-' being special in patterns, which is incredibly annoying.
I like that most of the differences make me context switch to Lua language, and my brain remembers most Lua-isms, but those two get me all the time. At least using '!=' it errors quickly, but the '-' pattern command is evil... and seemingly unnecessary since it duplicates '*'. (I assume '-' must have come first in some old Lua version)
