      Hello!

      :echo expand("**/somefile")

      yields a list of "somefile"s that are contained in the current directory
      and below -- except for those directories beginning with a ".". This
      observation is for linux, Centos 5.2, but I expect it applies elsewhere,
      too.

      Is this a bug? I didn't see anything in :help starstar, except for "In
      a search pattern this would be ".*". Note that the "." is not used for
      file searching. ", and I'm not sure if it applies.

      Regards,
      Chip Campbell
