While you are updating that code path, could you add the missing the \Q
\E around that $name (or quotemeta)?  Otherwise we get incorrect results
for packages like "g++" (interpreted as "1 or more instances of the
letter g" rather than "literally g++").

I believe this is a reoccurring problem in the code base, so you will
probably notice it elsewhere as well.

Thanks,
