I don't know, if this is a bug or just the misuse of a feature:

if I have two files with the same ending (could be any part of the
name), say 1.test and 2.test, and I want to copy both files to a
directory, but accidently type "return" before entering the directory name:

cp *.test

the second file is overwritten by the first file (I expected to get an
error message and was pretty surprised about that behaviour). (Funny)
Feature or bug?
