Issue/Introduction

The following filter was added to the trapX.config file:

filter * * * 6 9 1\.3\.6\.1\.4\.1\.6889\.2\.17\.1 forward 10.173.43.245:162
filter * * * 6 * 1\.3\.6\.1\.4\.1\.6889\.2\.17\.1 break

This should only allow this trap with a specific id of "9" to pass the filter.

However, traps with a specific id that starts with "9" like 92 or 936 also pass this filter.

The same occurs for any specific id. 

Cause

Defect in the regexp filtering.
