[aida] String>>match: broken

Hi Squeakers,

Latest trunk version broke the Aida/web and Herbert managed to find the
reason in new behavior of String>>match: which doesn't allow two '**' in
pattern anymore. In Aida the matching patterns are usually composed out
of many strings and as it happens two stars occurs in Aida's default
installation already.

Because this new match behavior (not allowing two '**') is new only in
Squeak but allowed in all other Smalltalks, I propose to reconsider this
decision and better retract back to old behavior.

Best regards
