bug with rm

   I'm a chemist and I've been using Linux for quite some time. I work
with a program called ADF that uses different scripts that have in the end
the following commands :  rm -f t21* and rm -f [A-Z]* logfile .
   The problem is that this command removes everything inside the
directory instead of only the specified files. This started to happen
since Red Hat 6.1 until 7.3. In the older distributions I've never had
this problem and in Red Hat 7.1 also doesn't occur.
   I think this must be a bug but if I'm wrong please forgive me for
wasting your time.

   Thank you for everything and please continue the good work, Rui.
