      I found this an issue as well, the problem is caused by '[...]' being a
      legal filename mask (i.e. find-file "*.[ch]" loads all c and h files).

      So I put a fix in, it now always checks for the existence of the file name
      you have given it, i.e. if the file "*.[ch]" exists ME will load just that
      file instead. The only gotcha here is that if you wish to create a file with
      that name you cannot use find-file.

      I'm not sure when this fix when it (6 months ago or more I think) so you
      will need to up-grade.

      We're hoping to push a beta soon and a release soon after,

      Steve
