Procmail regular expression: word end boundary matching


I seems not able to get the word end boundary matching for procmail 
works. Here is my test rc file:

:0 HB
* 1^0 \<test\>
* 1^0 test

and there is a ' test ' in my test email. 

However, from the dry run log, I can see that '\<test\>' did not match 
yet 'test' did. 

Anything I'm missing? 



1. my procmail

$ procmail -v
procmail v3.22 2001/09/10
. . .

2. About word end boundary matching, I found the following from the web:

    A shorthand for the character class [^a-zA-Z0-9_] except it can also 
match newlines. 
    This is an incompatible imitation of the "word end boundary" operator 
found in some extended regular expression implementations. Note that \< 
and \> are actually identical.
