Enhance Thunar search facility with patterns
Submitted by Tassilo Horn

When searching for files in a thunar window, the search string has to match exactly the start of the files. So if you have a folder with files
1-foo.x 2-bar.y 3-foo.x 4-bar.y 5-foo.y
and you are interested in files containing "foo" in their name, you cannot use the search facility at all, because the prefix is different.
It would be very nice if the search could interpret globbing patterns (-foo.) or regular expressions (.-foo..).
