The '\*' is almost certainly being specified somewhere. Whether it is in
the domain statement, objects field of the schedule, file specification
from the command line, or client options set is immaterial.
On the 5.2 client that experiences the problem, what does the following
dsmc show domain
Another way to verify would be to manually run the backup:
dsmc i \\machinename\sharename
Does the file space get updated on the server? Do the "incremental backup
of volume" and "successful incremental backup" messages show the share
with the '\*' appended at the end?

On both of these clients, the filespaces are included using a domain
statement, and the backups are simply run with a schedule where
action=incremental, without explicitly specifying any objects.
