The Mib.getSymbolByOid() method erroneously assumed that OID:s are formed in this way:


Instead, they have this form:<rownum>

The method is possible to use in a working manner if the exactMatch flag is set to false. However, if the exact match flag is set to true the results of the method are conceptually wrong.

The best solution is probably to remove the exactMatch flag altogether from the implementation and the API, leaving the method with correct and working semantics.
