SMP 7.1 filters with less than (<) character in name don't show up in picker list

I created a filter in SMP based on software inventory and when I named the filter I had a less than sign in the name (<) and this caused this filter and another filter with a similar name to not show in the list to apply to when building a managed software delivery policy. This caused a bit of frustrations for a few minutes (since the filter search sucks) untill I figured out what the issues was. I've tried a few other characters and the ones I tested worked fine ( "!,%,#,>" ).

Here's the filters I was trying to build:

Computers with Firefox installed - Already existed and showed up in filter picker.

Computers with Firefox < 19 installed - Caused both of these filters to not show up.

Thank you for bringing this issue to our attention.  It appears that this issue has been addressed in the code for the forthcoming release of Altiris IT Management Suite, code-named "Orion".
