Comment 1 Need Real Name 2002-11-01 15:11:50 UTC
I just checked it as "root" user.
There it works as expected.

Comment 2 giulioo 2002-11-01 16:06:26 UTC
I think this is expected behavior.
Try setting LC_COLLATE=C and then retry.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-11-01 18:59:48 UTC
The "LC_COLLATE=C" didn't change anything

Comment 4 Miloslav Trmac 2002-11-01 23:52:53 UTC
You'll need to use bash-2.05-7 from rawhide for changes to have
immediate effect.
To see the result without upgrading, do
LC_COLLATE=C bash -c 'ls [a-z]*'
