Problem Summary
---------------------------------------------------
Cannot run a "contains" search from opportunity regional search pane

Question
---------------------------------------------------

We would like to be able to run search from opportunity regional search pane with a string starting with a wildcard.
Doing this at the moment generates an error:
“Please provide a value that does not begin with a wildcard character for attribute Opportunity Name.”

This is not consistent with with behavior in customer center where such search is possible.
It is not consistent with QBE search in opportunity page which allows this kind of search

Search using "contains" is of course possible using Advanced search but this requires an extra click for our users. So, can the application be improved to allow such search from regional search pane ?
Request is :
 Ability to do a real-time 'contains' search by allowing preceding  wild card in a 'Starts with' search. i.e. '%Test' should return any opty  with the word 'Test' in it and this is a real-time search and not a text index based search.
