I edited some of my filters removing the brackets altogether.  Those filters
were edited to match "ValueA::*::ValueB".  The extra entries in those
filtered searches disappeared while the correct ones remained.

However one filter which was displaying 5 entries instead of the correct 4,
dropped the erroneous entry and also dropped a correct entry when edited as
above.  The dropped entry had a value in the middle column, unlike all the
previous entries.

I edited the filter again, this time adding the brackets again, with the new
end-of-row character.  Using [^0x2028] doesn't work, while using a space [^ ]
does.  So now my filters are "ValueA:[^ ]*:ValueB" and appear to display
the expected number of entries.

I will continue updating my additional filters and see if anything else crops up.

Thanks for the quick help!
