Ah, but the quotes *are* necessary on unix.  Without the quotes, the shell will try to fill in the glob, which will either fail with an error that no files match or (worse) succeed and turn the pattern into a list of filenames.  Which is why Zach is suggesting using double quotes, which have the (same) documented result on both unix and windows, even though *why* they have the same result is slightly different on the two systems.
