Your problem may be the use of Text Indices. These use the voabulary, which
handily strips out digits when indexing :-(

The way to get around it would be to use a Field Index...

...of course, then you can't use globbing matches like that, so there's no real
solution :-(

Can only suggest mailing Chris P and asking him, as he was last to do some
serious routing in the Catalog code...
