Fails if there is a file named -g in the current directory, as that
matches the unquoted glob and causes it to expand.  Also fails if failglob
is turned on, whether the file exists or not (fails differently in the
two cases).

Also fails if nullglob is turned on, but that is definitely not
recommended in interactive shells.
