[PATCH] test: add known broken test for xapian wildcard search in from:

This was broken by the addition of regexp searching. The detection of
wildcards is not currently done in the recursive call to parse_query,
perhaps because of quoting issues.
There should be a similar test for subject: but I wanted to report
this bug now.
