Bash Version: 4.3
Patch Level: 11
Release Status: release

  Not sure if this is a bug (it does bug me a little), however:

    shopt -s extglob
    local line='     x bar'
    echo "${line##*( )}"
    case "$line" in
      *( )x*) ;;
      *) ;;
  main "$@"

   fails with a syntax error on the first parenthesis in the case
statement. It does turn extglob on
  in other contexts (the echo line), but the extglob in the case
statement fails.
Interestingly, moving `shopt -s extglob` outside of main fixes the problem.
