Simplification question

can anyone please confirm this:

On my machine Mathematica 6.03 produces:

Simplify[dab^2 Cos[2 \[Alpha]] - dab^2 + 2 dbp^2]
-dab^2 + 2 dbp^2 + dab^2 Cos[2 \[Alpha]]


FullSimplify[dab^2 Cos[2 \[Alpha]] - dab^2 + 2 dbp^2]
-dab^2 + 2 dbp^2 + dab^2 Cos[2 \[Alpha]]




FullSimplify[dab^2 (Cos[2 \[Alpha]] - 1) + 2 dbp^2]
2 (dbp^2 - dab^2 Sin[\[Alpha]]^2)

Simplify[dab^2 (Cos[2 \[Alpha]] - 1) + 2 dbp^2]
2 (dbp^2 - dab^2 Sin[\[Alpha]]^2)


FullSimplify[-dab^2 + 2 dbp^2 +
  dab^2 Cos[2 \[Alpha]] - (-2 dab^2 Sin[\[Alpha]]^2 + 2 dbp^2)]
0



Checked on v7 - same result!
