Caution: filename not matched unzip error

Torchlight ZIP icon

Quick tip I picked up this afternoon. If you try to extract a series of archives with unrar or unzip and you get this error:

% unzip *zipcaution: filename not matched

… you can get around it by escaping the asterisk.

% unzip *zip

I wonder why it works like this when virtually nothing else does?
