Having to escape colon character in PI Point DR Tag Search

I have a simply tag name filter  *:*

 

I want every tag using a colon in its name.

 

If I code this up with FindPIPoints using a string filter or a PIPointQuery (with the Equal search operator) then it works fine with *:*

 

If I do the same via the PI Point DR Tag Search it complains that:  '*' is an invalid PIPoint attribute name.

 

If I escape the colon using *\:* in the tag search I get the same results as FindPIPoints. Obviously most users won't know to do this, nor should they be expected to do so.
