[messages] [Module Design] Matching Property Expression Issues

I set up a Game Piece Inventory Window with the following "match these
properties" field:

Side = $PlayerSide$ && Supply Type =~ HQ|QM|ST|LP|GSP

(Side and Supply Type are Marker Traits that are set on the Game Pieces.
 I have Allied, Axis, and Solo sides)

This works as expected for Allied and Axis -- only current PlayerSide
pieces matching one of the Supply Type property values listed in the
expression are shown in the Inventory Window.

If I add the following:

PlayerSide = Solo || Side = $PlayerSide$ && Supply Type =~

It still works for Allied or Axis sides, only showing that side's units
that match the Supply Type.

But if I Retire to side Solo

This breaks and all Game Pieces on the board are shown, not just the
pieces matching the Supply Type.  The Supply Type regular expression
check is ignored.  The Designer's Guide says that OR functions are
evaluated before AND functions, and to my eyes this should work.

What am I doing wrong?
