I created this filter. As i understand, the filter should show any questions tagged with any of ruby*, python*, mysql*, sqlite*.

It used to work ok until a few days ago. Now it always show 0 unanswered questions in the last 14 days, which is not true, if i do a filter containing only one tag, like ruby* or any other it work as expected.

And idea why this particular combination do not work?

it fail with the particular combination of tags i listed. If i try one by one, it work ok. – Pablo Castellazzi Jul 25 '11 at 19:57
even the one you put there works completely fine. – amanaP lanaC A nalP A naM A Jul 25 '11 at 20:05
This seems eerily similar to this previous issue. – huitseeker Nov 3 '11 at 7:19

I believe you simply need to click on active or hot.

However, I also don't see any questions on either the newest or no answers tabs.

Which seems more than a little odd given the tags.

That's the problem actually. If i set a filter with some of the tags i got results for newest and no answers tabs but with all that 4 always 0. – Pablo Castellazzi Jul 25 '11 at 23:54

Filters with wildcard tags end up being relatively taxing on our database. But we've just made some optimizations to our filters SQL query so largish filters such as this one are returning in a reasonable amount of time now.
