bug#7463: truncate

truncate (GNU coreutils) 7.4

Unexpected behavior:

$ ls -l
total 0
$ truncate --size 0 *.log
$ ls

I would expect "truncate --size 0 *.log" to truncate any files ending with ".log"; instead I get a new file called "*.log"

FYI, one of the first changes I make on a new installation is to alias truncate in .bashrc:
alias ll='ls -l'
alias la='ls -A'
alias truncate='truncate --size 0'
