Wildcard matching and regular expressions are two different languages. In
wildcard matching, "*" means "zero or more characters". In regular
expressions, "*" means "zero or more instances of whatever precedes".
The symbol for "any character" in regular expressions is ".".
I can't confirm that "*" searches literally for * in regular expressions. On
my system, it works as it should, e.g.
finds segments with Strasse, verfasst, Emissionen, etc.
