I was disconcerted to get the following (erroneous) result:

#### searching files ending in -comm from my home-dir:
address@hidden:~> find . -name *.comm | grep learning

#### descending into learning/aster causes "find" to fail descending into the
tree (dirs try1, try2, try3 etc - only the file xxx1.comm is located)
address@hidden:~> cd learning/aster/
address@hidden:~/learning/aster> find . -name *.comm

#### my find version:
address@hidden:~/learning/aster> find --version
GNU find version 4.2.19

#### my linux version (SuSE 9.3):
address@hidden:~/learning/aster> uname -a
Linux goldberg #1 Wed Mar 23 21:52:37 UTC 2005 i686 i686
