Description:
        Possible bug? Wildcard characters being evaluated at the wrong time.

Repeat-By:
        I enter the following commands and get the following results. I am
        intending that the whole string be sent to a remote system where any
        wildcard characters would be evaluated. From below, it appears that
        my wildcard characters are being evaluated locally in ALL cases. Am
        I mis-understanding this concept or is there a problem in bash?

        There is a file on my local system named /tmp/wtf.lsR and quite a few
        similarly paterned files on the remote system. When I remove the local
        file, command execution proceeds as expected/desired.

address@hidden bash-4.1 ~/gettowork };-) ssh address@hidden ls -al /tmp/\*.lsR
ls: cannot access /tmp/wtf.lsR: No such file or directory
address@hidden bash-4.1 ~/gettowork };-) ssh address@hidden "ls -al /tmp/*.lsR"
ls: cannot access /tmp/wtf.lsR: No such file or directory
address@hidden bash-4.1 ~/gettowork };-) ssh address@hidden 'ls -al /tmp/*.lsR'
ls: cannot access /tmp/wtf.lsR: No such file or directory
