Using 1.8.x, the dialog itself claims I can search by regular expression.
The drop-down by the filter has "use regular expressions" checked, I can
uncheck it if I choose. Hovering over the filetr box shows regular
expression help, including "$" for "end of line", "\s" for whitespace, and
a lot of other stuff.

Or maybe you're saying the regular expression doesn't apply to the path
string? "externals\s" matches log messages which have "externals" followed
by whitespace.

Thanks, I should have thought of that. I'll try that next time I need it.
