[p4] Can't add filenames with wildcards [@#%*] in them.

Did you accidentally type something like this:
p4 add "prefix.*"
The client can't expand * so it assumes it is a literal character.
The correct syntax would be:
p4 add prefix.*
That way the shell can expand it. (But if there are no files that
match, it will, again, be passed to p4 as a literal.)

Subject: [p4] Can't add filenames with wildcards [@#%*] in them.
I'm trying add a new source tree to my depot by doing "p4 add ...",
but get the message:
Can't add filenames with wildcards [@#%*] in them.
As far as I can tell, I don't have any filenames with those
characters in them. Is there any way to have p4 tell me exactly
which pathnames it's not happy with?
