Also some vendors place a lot of customization in /etc/profile,
/etc/profile.d/*, /etc/bash_otherplaces sourced in the above. It
might be turned on by one of those.
I see a lot of hits in the bash_completion add-on files. Should we be
$ grep -r "shopt -s extglob" /etc/bash*
/etc/bash_completion.d/nmh: shopt -s extglob
/etc/bash_completion.d/libreoffice.sh: test $g -eq 0 && shopt -s extglob
/etc/bash_completion.d/mercurial:shopt -s extglob
/etc/bash_completion.d/subversion:# pattern matching enabled (use 'shopt -s extglob progcomp' to enable
/etc/bash_completion.d/subversion:shopt -s extglob
