That's the main feature.

I'm not sure what this refers to.  It sounds like a bug.

That's a bug.

Sounds like a bug as well.  Of course, this part of the code is difficult to
get right because it uses an underlying shell to do the globbing, so maybe
it's a bug we won't fix.

I don't have you original email and the info you provide above about the
various problems isn't detailed enough for me to know where to look and how
to fix it.  Please give me more details.
