Trying to set a filter in a lister generates an error under OS4 if the wildcard string is too long. eg. set show .(jpg|png|gif|tif|bmp|iff) generates an amigados error (attached).
I have set up default filters in the lister menu for pictures, movies, archives, documents etc. but have also had to set up individual entries as the combined ones are all to long.
Iirc the buffer should be 3 times the search string so anything over 13 characters will probably fail.
