Right on the money, Ken. I'd done some more trawling around before I got
your message, and the bash man page says that the environment variable
LC_COLLATE "determines the collation order used when sorting the results of
pathname expansion". I have no value for this, but perhaps it then uses the
value of LANG. Anyway, the answer is to set LC_COLLATE to C or POSIX and
then shell pathname expansion behaves as it has since God invented Unix.

I did - I hope they just ignore me :-)
