[plt-scheme] plt-match: Matching with last element

Hi all,

Having some issues with plt-match which doesn't seem to be matching
the following:
(define test
    [(list 'hello pat ... (list 'bye name))
     (display pat)
     (display name)]
    [_ (error 'syntax "Some wierd problem.")]))

This is strange due to the fact that it is not matching the last list
when I do for example:
(test '(hello "Paulo" (bye "Paulo")))

It should also work with
(test '(hello "Paulo" "Joana" (bye "Paulo")))

but it seems there's some issue here.

Not very used to work with plt-match so any ideas on this issue would
be extremelly welcome.
