It's not a bug (since it is documented):

These four operators perform their character transformations on  
rectangular regions, as well as exact or full-line regions.
(uppercase, lowercase, flip-case, and blank, respectively)

That is, these operator only accept counts for the number
of lines which are affected.  (I'm looking at the code now,
to see whether it might be a simple enhancement to allow an
operator "l" to amend this behavior).

(Win)vile (9.8l/m) on both Windows and Linux seems to have a bug in lowercase operator with 'l' motion.


^A-l-l on 'H' in:
results in:
abc defghijklm nop

'A-l-<count>l results in 'Motion Failed' message.
