iRule Condition Operator "=~" is not matching to the patterns correctly in 7.5. It is matching to a substring.

The following is defined for iRule:



STEPS TO REPRODUCE
-------------------------
1.  Create a simple iRule with an data file having pattern like ".*ABC" for one of the field defined in CONDITION.
2.  Process a CDR which should have field value "ABC" as a substring, but it should not end with ABC.

    iRule will evaluate the Result having the pattern as a matching pattern, which is not correct.
