My message was poorly formatted (I lack of experience) and consequently you misunderstood it. The shell operation is unusual when a regular expression appears inside a conditional expression. Indeed, neither the Bash man page or the Bash Reference Manual indicates that the shell quotes some characters internally (Bash FAQ: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/cgit/bash.git/tree/doc/FAQ#n1927). Moreover, the explanation in the Bash FAQ is unclear; it lacks examples to know when "an interference" occurred.

Look at the following answer to get an overview of the issue: https://stackoverflow.com/a/12696899
