Weird Eclipse Open Resource Matching

In Eclipse's Open Resource dialog, "*TEU", or even "*TEvalU" should match '', should it not? Well it does not. My little theory is that the 'E' is used up by the 'e' in 'Template'. Which must be seen as a bug.

However, "DTEU" matches on the subword initial capitals. I'd say 'go figure', but hey. 

Can't trust anything these days :). It looks minor, but it's really a pretty serious problem, if you rely on your names to be able to find stuff. And not wasting time trying to figure out why something that you feel should be found. If it matches "DTEU", you're expecting it to match the looser (loser) pattern "*TEU".
