What should the regexp match?  List the positive cases:

*, then up to four characters, then *
*, then a character that isn't M, then anything, then *
*M, then a character that isn't a, then anything, then *
*Ma, then a character that isn't n, then anything, then *

I think you can complete the list yourself.
