Description:
        Globbing seems to be always case insensitive when using any
        locale.

Globbing depends on the collation order imposed by the locale.  Many
locales do not collate A..Za..z as you seem to be expecting (for
example, en_US collates aAbB...zZ).


Repeat-By:
        $ export LC_ALL=de_DE ; ls scons-[A-Z]*
        scons-local-0.95.tar.gz
$ export LC_ALL=C ; ls scons-[A-Z]*
        ls: scons-[A-Z]*: No such file or directory

Don't use character ranges when you're not in the C locale.  Use
[:upper:] and [:lower:] instead.
