BE selection list syntax

In the Backup Exec selection list, it is possible to use the details view to enter a selection in the following syntax:

e:\folder1\12*\*.* /subdir

This causes the resource view to correctly check ALL folders in folder1 that have names begining with "12". The advantage is that it ignores other folders in folder1 and automatically includes NEW folders beginning with "12".

The problem is that, even though it appears to work nicely, it generates an error when the job runs (see ticket 06475256, 24-Apr-2014). What makes it even worse is the error does not appear to have anything to do with the selection syntax. Instead it says that the BE license is not valid for the job.

My idea is that this should be fixed. Preferably by making it work. If not, then the syntax should not be accepted when entered.
