The RHS of [[ has pattern matching applied on unquoted parts, so yes,
you probably want quotes around $1.
Pattern matching?   Why doesn't '*' match anything then?

Do you mean pathname expansion?  or are you thinking of the =~
operator?  I.e. where would it match a pattern?  It can't match
in the current directory, since it just failed a pathname
expansion in the line before.  But for a regex, I thought you
needed '=~' ??
