I can kill this crap off with no problem - except for the ^. I've tried all
of the following in my test filters (all begining with :0 B)
Each resulted in Match not found according to my verbose logs.
Your last condition should have worked, actually, for all those cases
where the caret wasn't the first thing on the line. The problem is
that a leading backslash on a regexp is stripped while looking for the
conditions specials like '!', '?', '$', 'var ??', etc. The lonely '.'
in your fourth example, or the '()' in what I show (kudos to David
Tamkin for the idea) serve to protect the backslash from this
strippage. Otherwise, escaping the caret with a backslash is all that
it should require.
