Are you sure? Under bash, the behaviour of the pathname expansion can be
somewhat controlled by a variable called nullglob:

   [taco at glenlivet context]$ shopt -p nullglob
   shopt -u nullglob
   [taco at glenlivet context]$ shopt -s nullglob
   [taco at glenlivet context]$ echo *pdftex

   [taco at glenlivet context]$ shopt -u nullglob
   [taco at glenlivet context]$ echo *pdftex
   *pdftex

So perhaps that (or something like that) is what is causing the
difference?
