Actually it's a feature... the claim_info command accepts a regular
expression as its first argument. For claims whose symbols have
meta-characters such as '*', '^', and '$' in them, you need to use
backslashes for an exact match on the claim, e.g.:

claim_info BC\*\*,short

I realize this isn't well-documented. I'm hoping to greatly expand the
information returned by the 'help' command in the next week or so.
