  IMHO the behavior is correct: if you want metacharacters interpreted by the
  command, you should explicitly run e.g. "sh" with the arguments "-c" and then
  your desired command-line-to-be-parsed. It is safer to not expand the wildcards
! by default.

! As Jesse has said, expansion of * and ? is a function of the shell under Unix. 
! I don't think we should duplicate this functionality in Ant.
