File Event "Fuzzy"-mode Regex Filtering

Applies to FileEventInclusionPaths and FileEventExclusionPaths preference fields.

Changes the regex evaluation logic to scan through the file path searching for where the regular expression pattern produces a match.

Fuzzy searching is case-insensitive when matching and does not require the first part of the path to match the regular expression.

Note: Forward slashes and spaces in file paths should not be escaped when defining inclusion paths in the preference file.
