I don't follow, what did you expect? Do the files "test-evaldo-test"
and "test-foo-test" exist?
It behaves consistly with what I'd expect (remember: the shell expansion
occurs twice: once by the client's shell and once by the server's).

Good judgement comes with experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad judgement.
