Long entry getting past regex filter in logs

I have my APC UPS connected to OpenHAB using apcupsd and it works great. But the logging is driving me bonkers. This is on OpenHABian on an rPi. Latest stable release.

I have a regex filter to filter out useless junk from the logs from many different things as many people do. I added APC_* to that regex to filter out the APC_xxxx log records. It filters out all of the APC_ logging except this one really long one.

This is the filter:

# custom filter
log4j2.appender.event.filter.uselessjunk.type = RegexFilter
log4j2.appender.event.filter.uselessjunk.regex = .*(hem_*|REFRESH|predicted|APC_*|wx_*|temp_*|humid_*|str*|mot_*|astro).*
log4j2.appender.event.filter.uselessjunk.onMatch = DENY
log4j2.appender.event.filter.uselessjunk.onMisMatch = ACCEPT

But this log entry is getting past the filter. I’m assuming it has something to do with the length of the text or something?

Why is this getting through the regex filter, and how can I make it go away?

Just add APC_ instead of APC_*

I tried too, and it did not change anything. I just tried it again and still no change.

Try this one:
.*(hem_|REFRESH|predicted|APC_|wx_|temp_|humid_|str|mot_|astro).*
Basically remove all the * inside the bracket. They are not needed

Did you already restart openHAB?

Tried. No change.

Yes. No change.
