Thanks for spotting this out to me, anyway I have already looked into
this problem and fixed it in my ppa costamagnagianfranco/boinc /firefox
and locutusofborg-ppa.

This wildcard problem has been also reported and fixed upstream a long time ago.

This bug anyway triggered some more bugs:
-check for executable bit: it DOESN'T work with current wxwidgets, I opened a wx bug and they said me that this works with wx 3.0, so I disabled this check until 3.0 gets into debian and ubuntu.
-the add doesn't work, to make it work I followed the upstream guide to change permissions and so on.

I don't know what change made it work (maybe adding the user to boinc
group? Chmod the files?)

Pretty sure it was a permission problem in editing the file.

So if anybody wants to help me in fixing the second part of this bug can
just use my ppa, follow the upstream guide to client configuration,
reboot at each change and tell me which change did the trick.

I have a clean machine right now, so I'll do this trick too.
