It's worth noting here that bash's globbing of '[A-Z]*' etc is
definitely different from the system collation sequence (i.e. using
fnmatch() or glob() functions).  There is an open bug report about this



Steps to Reproduce:
1. touch h
2. sh -c 'LC_ALL=en_US; echo [A-Z]'
3. python -c 'from locale import *; import glob; setlocale(LC_ALL,"en_US");
print glob.glob("[A-Z]")'
