Bug#277536: /usr/bin/apt-cache: . and * in regexp

Package: apt
Version: 0.5.27
Severity: normal
File: /usr/bin/apt-cache

I may not be the most knowledgeable when it comes to regexp, but
shouldn't the first command give the more extensive, global output (ie,
shouldn't it find the libglade2-dev package)??

flo@tigerbay:~$ apt-cache search libglade*-dev
libglade0-dev - Development files for libglade
flo@tigerbay:~$ apt-cache search libglade.-dev
libglade0-dev - Development files for libglade
libglade2-dev - Development files for libglade
