extglob operators incorrectly handle literal parens

I am using bash version 3.00.16(1)-release on Mac OS X.

The problem is that literal parentheses are not matched correctly when
they are specified inside extglob operators.  Normal (non-extended)
patterns are fine:

$ touch foo\(
$ ls foo\(

But extended globbing doesn't work right:

$ shopt -s extglob
$ ls @(foo\()
ls: @(foo(): No such file or directory

Same error with the other extglob operators ?(), *(), +() and !().
