[ecasound] ecasound-2.5.0: suspicious diagnostic message WRT LADSPA plugin numeric ID

Hello All,

when I run ecasound with -ddd, I see a lot of diagnostic messages having
'regexp' in them.

First an example of such a message which looks OK to me:

(eca-object-map) match (1): chmove to regexp ^chmove$

I do not know what the above exactly means, but what makes me feel good are
the '^', '$' characters, i.e. the whole string is matched, so there is no
danger of false match.

However, this message:

(eca-object-map) match (1): 1020 to regexp 1020

makes me feel uneasy - 1020 is numeric ID of one of the two LADSPA plugins
I'm using; the other plugin has 1010 numeric ID, so in this particular
case there is no danger of false match.

Suppose that I have two plugins with numeric IDs of 1020, 10200, then
1020 will also match 10200 since there are no '^', '$' anchors which are
rightly present in a lot of other internally generated regular expressions.

Is my concern justified, i.e. is there a possibility of false matching ?
