Imperfect string matching when VBox suggests machine type by its name

Hi guys,

Looks like there is a small problem with how VBox decides on the type of OS by the name of a new virtual machine.

I entered Ubuntu 16.04 (restored) as a name for the new VM and noticed that after typing restored the version of the machine changed from Ubuntu to Red hat. It seems like the regexp matcher considers red in restored as a hint while it should not. The solution is rather simple - not to consider the keywords as hints if the words do not start with them.

Another name I just tried is Ubuntu twin. As in the first case, the suggested type of the OS changes from Ubuntu to Windows just after typing n in twin.
