My bash just updated to:

GNU bash, version 4.2.8(1)-release (x86_64-suse-linux-gnu)

Suddenly there is no expansion anymore on expressions such as:

    echo  './src/qt-test'*

This causes trouble in our makefiles, such as at line 83 in qt.mk.

Could this be anything other than a bash bug?
It would seem so:


Yeah, I filed that once I got over my astonishment.

but it's hard to imagine how such a bug would happen. It would be very
interesting to track down.

Reminds me of when "chown -R" from a certain distro's coreutils several years ago starting traversing symbolic links by default.
