This was probably part of the upgrades that were done to
fix the locking/share mode problems in the 2.0.7 -> 2.2.x

It isn't easy to say for certain exactly what the fix was
as there have been literally *hundreds* of correctness fixes,
from wildcard matching to the above mentioned locking

I'm afraid you'll have to wait until 2.2.0 ships, which
I cannot say for certain yet (we're still working on the
NT printing update).
