The roor reason is that pattern should be converted into correct regexp. 14 reports so far.
Fixed in the main.

The fix caused the f
Sorry for incomplete comment.
The fix causes regression:
previously such patterns as ".*" worked, now they do not.
In NB versions 6.1 through 6.9 (I didn't check earlier versions) patterns like ".*" worked. The ".*" pattern showed just all symbols.
According to the description this field accepts wildcards, not the regexps.
In this sence ?* should work instead of .*
Just wondering how to distiguish regexp w/o 'regexp' checkbox.
What you propose seems reasonable... but is changing the behavior right thing to do after it worked certain way for many releases? - that's the question. I believe we should just make it smarter.
What about simplistic decision: try treating it as a regexp, in the case we get an exception when compiling this regexp, we do the replacement you propose?
We finally agreed that, according to the text in the dialog, regular expressions are not supported. Only "?" and "*" wildcards are.
please nominate it for possible patch
Any chance to backport it for 6.9?
Michel, I see this unrealistic. Unless, Andrey builds new module compatible with 6.9, has this tested fully and asks for publishing on the 6.9 UC. Andrey?
Just let me know if I can help with anything. Of course I can help to test it without any problem.
Hi Jirka, Andrey doesn't work any more in this area.
And who does, Alexei?
