After upgrading from v5 to v6, the job launch distribution doesn't work properly in a queue when a MU joblimit is set with the character "*"

Investigation
  1. Create a physical queue PHY_TEST_B with a joblimit value at 10 
  2. Update the MU joblimit in the queue with the complete name of the objects 
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/uxupdque queue="PHY_TEST_B" addmu="C2__DZ*:4,C2__ES*:4,C2__FR*:4" 
  1. Launch the script below one time for the 3 MU (C2__DZCITIL,C2__ESSCAN,C2__FRIMPU) 
Script 1: 

j=0 
k=0 
while [ $j -lt 1 ] 
do 
j=`expr $j + 1` 
echo "Start lot $j" 
i=0 
while [ $i -lt 10 ] 
do 
i=`expr $i + 1` 
k=`expr $k + 1` 
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/uxadd fla EXP upr=TEST4 mu=C2__DZCITL queue=PHY_TEST_B pdate=10/05/2017 user=root lend=10/30/2017,0000 prty=005 
echo $k 
done 
sleep 60 
echo "End lot $j" 
done 


Script 2: Replace the value mu=C2__FRIMPU 

Script 3: Replace the value mu=C2__ESSCAN 

 
  1. Result of the dispatch in the queue is incorrect : 
$UNI_DIR_EXEC/uxshwque queue=PHY_TEST_B
