I'd like to report a documentation bug.

In current master (revision 655e8e4a3d9a), the manual says:

@item address@hidden
This (repeatable) option lets you suppress acting on files that match the
given perl regular expression.  For example, using the options

--ignore='*.orig' --ignore='*.dist'
@end example

The argument is described as a regexp in the synopsis and in the prose,
but the example, '*.orig', is not a valid regular expression; it's a
glob pattern.

Great catch, thanks!  Fixed in git master and will be in the next release:
