in the above masks, any '*' returns too many unwanted files... after some hours 
of experimenting i finally figured out that using '?' works better but in some 
cases, it can also return unwanted files (shorter filenames) than desired...

i'm not aware of MatchesMaskList but i will hunt it down and see if it helps...

thanks! ;)
