Why would any REMOTE WILDCARD = "No match" ???

Using newest rsync on Mac OS X:
Why would THIS work:
rsync -avze ssh derek at mydomain.com:/home/derek/digitize.pub ./
But THIS immediately shoot back a "No match" error:
rsync -avze ssh derek at mydomain.com:/home/derek/*.pub ./
The 2nd example doesn't even try to log in.
Rsync just immediately shoots back this error:
rsync: No match.
Wildcard DOES work locally: THIS WORKS:
rsync -avz /Users/derek/Documents/* ./
So it seems it's not ANY wildcard that doesn't work. Only remote ones.
I use rsync just fine on all other machines. I've only seen this
"no-remote-wildcard" behavior on Mac OS X. Both their default old version
or the newest install.
