Bug in input filtering

Jörgen Stenarson-2
Hi I think I have found two bugs in the input filtering.

1. wildcard search is broken

In [8]: import os

In [9]: ?os.p*
------------------------------------------------------------
    File "<ipython console>", line 1
      ?os.p*
      ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax


2. extended help with ?? doesn't work at all.

In [11]: ??os.path
------------------------------------------------------------
    File "<ipython console>", line 1
      ??os.path
      ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

This works correctly for me.

Now that's true, fails for me as well.

Incidentally, do you have some particular reason to use '??os.path'
instead of 'os.path??'
?
