634 Custom-Column condiiton <sub> is broken

I think the custom column condition "All Subfolders <sub>" is not working correctly.

How it works in FC-XE 634:
Folder name mask = E:\Audio applies the custom column settings to that folder only, but not to any subfolders within it. This is essentially the same result as the condition "Folder Name <mask>", so <sub> is broken here.

Folder name mask = E:\Audio\* applies the custom column settings to all levels of subfolders under it, but not to the folder itself. Note that the example provided in the <sub> dialog "c:\temp; *\fotos" does not require a following \* to bring in the subfolders, so <sub> is broken in this respect as well.

How I think it should work:
Folder name mask = E:\Audio will apply the custom column settings to that folder and all levels of subfolders under it. This is what is implied by the example in the <sub> dialog.

An alternative approach would be to dispense with the <sub> condition entirely, and have the <mask> condition "\foldername\*" (with final asterisk) mean all subfolders.
