It seems like the * wild card character no longer works in filetool.lst in 4.4.4. For instance, I have been using /etc/ssh/*key* to save ssh key files. I looked in the backup.tar.gz archive and sure enough the key files are not backed up anymore. I'm not sure which version of dsl lost this capability.

filetool.lst is just a list of files. It is not a script and tar via the -T option does not preform any preprocessing, only files and directories are supported with the -T option.

You can easily expand your target into a  list via:

cd /
find etc/ssh/*key* >> /opt/.filetool.lst
