When I do

rm  --recursive   --verbose   a.out

or more generally when I use "rm -R", it only deletes the corresponding files in the current directory.

rm will only delete the filename specified to it. If one of those files is a directory and --recursive is given, the directory and all its contents will be removed (subject to permissions).

Do you know if there is some thing to configure or some way to correct that?

I'm afraid there's not enough information here to determine the cause of the problem. Please explain in detail (as for any bug report):
- What you did?
- What happened?
- What did you you expect to happen?

Please copy and paste any command-line examples into the reply.
