samba share file filter bug (?)

Hi all,
I've noticed a very odd behavior with samba on multiple systems with
different samba releases (3.3.15, 3.5.10, 3.6.3)

To reproduce:
create a file in a samba share named
DAB11846_17.txt (works also for DAB11846_170005.txt or a lowercase version)

then connect to the share (via windows or smbclient)
and do a "dir DC*"

you'll notice that the file is found even it should not match.

I could not find any information about something similar.
Any clue?
