[opensuse] Globbing broken in bash in 11.1 (really serious bug)

I just noticed a really serious bug in bash filename globbing:

$ echo /B*
$ echo /[A-C]*
/bin /boot

This is on an ext3 filesystem, which should clearly be case-sensitive!

BTW: I found out about this bug by running

$ rm -rf /some/dir/[A-Z]*
