Or learn to avoid the problem
Authored by: thadman08 on Nov 17, '05 05:50:57AM

You have to be careful with '~/folder/.*'. That covers the dot-files, yes, but it also covers 'dot' and 'dot dot', meaning the folder itselft and the parent folder.

Depending on the command you are using, this can affect a few more files than you might think.
