Post Square brackets in filename breaking Calibre Regex?

I have a bunch of books with names such as:

Book Title [ISBN-0123456789].pdf

I've created a simple RegEx that should work

(?P<title>.+)\[ISBN-(?P<isbn>\d+)\].+

It works in various web Regex testers (such as http://gskinner.com/RegExr/)
but not in Calibre, any ideas why not?

remove the .+ at the end. The regex matches the filename *without* the extension.
