Description maemo (reporter) 2010-05-06 18:18:16 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION:
multilist 0.3.11-2

EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM: 
(Explain in detail what you do (e.g. tap on OK) and what you see (e.g. message
Connection Failed appears))
1. open a list
2. select "search category" from menu
3. enter "abc?" into search field

EXPECTED OUTCOME:

finds all entries which match the given regular expression, like "tab", "abba"
or "abcd"

ACTUAL OUTCOME:

finds only entries with the given string in title

REPRODUCIBILITY:
always

OTHER COMMENTS:

Instead of full regex support which might overextend the average usage at least
some simple wildcards could be supported:
*: any string of any length
?: a single character
and so on.
