[QF-Test] Component matching in QFTest2.0.5

We have a UNIX application that sets the title bar to include the user name and host name. The window has an expandable/collapsable column of buttons so sometimes the window only has a title bar and "no" dimensions. Mousing over the title causes the window to expand. While sometimes the "Wait for component" (and other component reference commands ) is able to match it against the component name is was recorded with, other times it is not able to match the component. It appears as though it has a problem matching the component when the window is collapsed, so the dimensions don't match and the title doesn't match (even though the initial substring of the title matches.)

So, I was wondering if there is a way that I can work around this issue? It doesn't appear as though I can use wild cards for the component name. If it is any help, we have a small Jython script that determines the hostname and sets a global variable. I didn't see any way to use a variable in the match.

Any help would be appreciated.
