The pattern translated into human language:

Start - one digit - zero or more digits - one dot - one digit - zero or 
more digits - one dot - one digit - zero or more digits - end

Sure there will be a more sophisticated check needed to allow a maximum 
of three digits per field.

I have reported this very problem in a previous version, which was 
corrected, but it seems that this change has been reverted.
I haven't reported it through the bug tracker, but through the mailing 
list, so it will be hard to find.
