Can you explain the reason for this change? (lisp/ChangeLog.8):

1999-02-16  Paul Eggert  <address@hidden>
* dired.el (dired-move-to-filename-regexp): Prepend .* so that we
find the last match if there are multiple matches.

It has the consequence that file names starting with a date, as in the attached example, are not correctly identified. Removing .* fixes the problem, but I don't want to remove it when I don't know why it was added.
