Description zut 1999-10-15 10:47:04 UTC
Found a bug in tcsh:

Example: (typed in a running tcsh)
pc-9:~ mkdir t
pc-9:~ cd t
pc-9:~/t touch A B c
pc-9:~/t echo [A-Z]*
A B c
pc-9:~/t sh
[zut@pc-9 t]$ echo [A-Z]*
[zut@pc-9 t]$

sh parses the patterns correctly, tcsh works wrong !

I think this is a serious bug having to due with glibc and locale.
With LC_ALL=en_US, this bug always happens for me in 6.1.  With LC_ALL
undefined and LC_COLLATE=C, it works fine.

This bug is going to break a lot of scripts!
