That's a feature. Most programs called by the shell will then just
use the wildcard string as a filename and report that the file does
not exist. Most often this is a useful behaviour. E.g.:

$ rm *.bak
rm: cannot remove `*.bak': No such file or directory

while an empty list would make rm print the usage message.

In bash you can enable the 'empty list' behaviour with 'shopt -s nullglob'.
