I do not know if this is an obsolete feature or not, but using
GNU bash, version 2.05b.0(1)-release I can press TAB and get
file name completion on arguments like ``*abc'' when there is
only one file ending in ``abc''.  With my version at home
GNU bash, version 3.1.17(1)-release I have not figured out how
to do that.  Even after ensuring that all the common ``set -o''
and ``shopt'' options are set the same way.  Nothing I've thought
to Google for has gotten me to any explanation, so I am writing.
Thank you!  Regards, Bruce
