If both your "White Casper" and "Asian Style" eggplant varieties are exhibiting the same cotyledon curling/falling off problem then it's unlikely genetic and probably soil related.
A conclusion I've come to - but do to an accidental sloshing of he wet vermiculite, the seeds are potentially mixed. I've got a lot more of the long-purple seeds and will plant a bunch - let's see what happens. As mentioned before, I've now had trouble with Casper twice.

and most assuredly have gotten my attention.

I actually found a little article on Monsanto buying a smaller seed company - stopping the minor fraud they carried out (several variety names for same seeds) and then discontinuing varieties, in particular, those that primarily targeted home gardens (Mansanto doesn't sell seeds to that market). OK - Ichiban was amongst them. But you remarks bring up many questions. Was, in fact, Ichiban the archtype of such cultivars or just another version? Also, along those lines, home many F's are sufficient, in your opinion, before a cultivar breeds true (true enough)?

I've no actual answers - but I'm curious to what you would attribute this eggplant seedling malady if both varieties do show it? (1) Unused vermiculite; (2) Unused potting soil (although by then it is too late). An environment that's served me well for years?

Based upon how it was discussed in the Wikipedia article on eggplant, 'Caspar' is very possibly a blanket name for the white cultivars and thus can cover up a lot of sin.

It's been scores of years since I did VAX Macro Assembler, or even PC Assembler on a 286. None the less - those who have waded into truth must ever nod our heads toward one-another, for we have seen the might!
