Symptoms

On : 6.2.1.0 version, Workflow Administration

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
v621: +Children Workflow Resolution criteria not working
We have a workflow template set up to leverage workflow resolution criteria of business unit value = company)name + Children. The system does not appear to be functioning properly under these conditions. When we change the value to match the value specified exactly, we do not have issues. If changing the criteria to 'Hierachy', it works too.
The same issue exists with Segments + Children workflow resolution criteria.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Material Spec should resolved to correct workflow if the business unit and segment are children of the resolution criteria of a pre-defined workflow template with BU +Children

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Workflow template WFA_1 for material spec has resolution criteria of BU = BU_1 + Children
2. Create material spec MATL_1 setting BU = BU_1_child which is a child of BU_1
3. Click Save&Close, MATL_1 wfa is resolved to 'Golbal Specificication Approval (Needs translation)
It should be resolved to WFA_1
4. If WFA_1 resolution criteria set to BU_1 hierarchy, MATL_1 wfa resolves to WFA_1
5. Same for Segments
