I have to apologize - I misread the terms, took them as regular 
expressions ('*' as a repetition "0 or more") while they are shell 
patterns ('*' meaning "anything").
So I misread the second term as "aix4.1 matches" while it really 
doesn't, only "aix4.10" (and up) does, and similar for the fourth.

So while the second one is not needed (there is no AIX 4.10, AFAIK it 
ends at AIX 4.3), it doesn't do any harm, and my previous mail is moot. 
Sorry for the confusion I had and maybe caused !

Regards,
Jörg
