This issue has been resolved.
Descriptive Problem Summary:
Using the interface editor, create a macro on any key that calls the command ".key*", where * is any sequence of characters. Run the project, press the key that triggers the command, note that no error message is received (despite there being no verb named ".key*" being defined).

Change the macro definition so that it's ".ke*", try the same process. Note that you get an error message indicating that the command doesn't exist.

If the ".key*" command does exist, it won't be called by the macro.

Code Snippet (if applicable) to Reproduce Problem:
macro "macro"
                name = "A"
                command = ".key_A"
                is-disabled = false

Expected Results:
Either a compile-time error message indicating that commands of that form are reserved, or for the macro to work.

Actual Results:
Macro silently fails.
