Custom view querying trouble ('begins with')

I wanted to create a view displaying all my incomplete stuff in Soulseek.

The file names always begin with INCOMPLETE~.

Filename begins with INCOMPLETE~ doesn't work.
Filename contains INCOMPLETE~ does work, though.

What's the problem that 'begins with' doesn't work?
A bug?
Files _definitely_ begin with INCOMPLETE~.
I even did a hex edit to make sure there are no other preceding control characters.

I wonder why the 'begins with' query always fails ...

I think that's because filename begins with xxx will look for the first characters of the PATH as well.
So you will need to state the path as well.

Good Winamp plugins by Joonas, DrO and shaneh.
If you're bored go here or, if the boredom is more serious, here.

Bleh ... but this couldn't be it
Can anyone of the team confirm that Winamp really looks for the path as well?
So I'd like to put this on the wishlist so we can have a stripping function henceforth, leaving us back the mere filename to work with.

LOL!!

And everytime my system configuration changes (HD, partition letters etc.), I will have to edit the view manually!
Talk about portability!

Yes it does check the path as well.

query language documentation (in Add/Edit View)
Field names:
TYPE: 0 for audio files, 1 for video files
FILENAME: Full filename (including path)

Doesn't work if you download whole folders.
