Not sure whether this is the right forum re. XML validation. If there is a better one: please advise!

In our test folders we have a couple of (purposely) faulty XML files.
EACH and EVERY time I do a full rebuild these are flagged as validation errors!

No matter what I specify in Preferences -> Validation -> XML Validation -> Settings under "Exclude Group: these files keep getting validated and hence flagged as build errors and this is mighty annoying!

What syntax is expected for a "Folder or Filename" rule?

Our faulty testfiles are named like "Filename-01.xml" to "Filename-30.xml" but strings like "Filename*.xml" or even "Filename*" (with or without the case sensitive flag checked) obviously don't match. Also, specifying the full pathname or just the directory-local name or even trying with RegEx syntax (i.e. "Filename.*") didn't make any difference.

Is this matcher simply buggy? Or is there some secret sauce to get this "Exclude Group" working?

And if it's buggy, where do I report this?
