User-Agent: Mozilla/3.0 (X11; Linux i686; U) Opera 7.23 [en]
Description of problem:
When I try to do a content search ("containing text") as either root
or user with the file name as the wild card "*", kfind crashes.
The application KFind (kfind) crashed and caused the signal 11
Output of the backtrace is attached.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start kfind from either the start menu or a konsole.
2. Put the wild card '*' in the "Named" field.
3. Switch to the "Contents" tab, type a string of text in the
"Containing text" field.
4. Click on the "Find" button.
Actual Results: Kfind crashes (disappears, rather than locking up)
and the KDE Crash Handler pops up.
Expected Results: It should have scanned for files containing the
desired text string.

Okay, it seems to work okay if I use .* instead of * in the file name

need to switch Product to Fedora Core first) in the bug report and put it
back to NEW state.
