first, you should not that in Smarts' wildcard patterns, the char * doesn't mean the same thing as usual (POSIX) regex.
* means _any_ character, not a repetition
in your pattern matching there is a risk of false positive (although it is low because of the complete wildcard)
now, the issue in your case seems to be the missing * at the end of your wilcard. Because without this, it will not try to "match" the rest of the string.
