Description Nico Dorn 2014-10-29 16:51:06 UTC
Filtering the folder contents with a string that contains an opening square bracket never returns any results. Other brackets (round brackets, face brackets and angle brackets) work fine though.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Navigate to folder that contains some files which have one or more opening square brackets in its names.
2. Type "[" into the filter bar

Actual Results:  
No file is shown.

Expected Results:  
The files that have an opening square bracket in its name should be shown.

Thanks for the bug report!
I can reproduce the problem in Dolphin 4.14.2.

Pushed by arjunak into branch 'Applications/14.12'.

Ensure input is a valid regexp before enabling regexp filter mode

Checking whether the input contains '*', '?' or '[' alone will
not do since there can be files with '[' in their name.
