Of course that makes sense for the "==" and "!=" cases.  But is that
true even for the "=" case?  For the "=" case I thought it was
"STRING1 = STRING2" and not "STRING = PATTERN".

`=' and `==' are always equivalent.  When used in the test/[ command,
they match strings.  In the [[ conditional command, they match patterns.
