If you run "find . -name *.txt" in a directory containing foo.txt and
bar.txt then the shell expands *.txt before executing find, i.e. you
would be running "find . -name foo.txt bar.txt" which produces a syntax
error. Either quote ('*.txt') or escape (\*.txt) the argument.
It's funny that when creating the bug report there was a choice for the package
to report against:
- I don't know.
I chose "I don't know", but it has been assigned to linux allthesame.
** Also affects: findutils (Ubuntu)
