Yes, values resulting from a glob expansion should be compared with strcoll.

How many characters should there be in a range like [0-0] ?
Or to be more precise: in a [0] bracket expression? one?

If I were you, I would file a bug report with Debian against wcscoll.

telling it to do.

And, that in any case, that file has been updated in glib2.8 anyway.
