base_filter.rb determine_example_type regex too narrow

Reported by Chris Maynard | October 22nd, 2009 @ 07:15 AM

This valid XPATH is getting misidentified as a string:
'//div[@class="myclass"]/a/@href' while these work:
'//div[@class="myclass"]/@href' '//div/a/@href' etc.

base_filter.rb line 104 column 102:

    when /^\/{1,2}[a-z]+[0-9]?(\[[0-9]+\])?(\/{1,2}[a-z()]+[0-9]?(\[[0-9]+\])?)*(\[@.+=.+\])?(\/@.+)?$/

needs another ? added:

    when /^\/{1,2}[a-z]+[0-9]?(\[[0-9]+\])?(\/{1,2}[a-z()]+[0-9]?(\[[0-9]+\])?)*(\[@.+=.+\])?(\/@?.+)?$/

Then the XPATH works fine.
