|If I'm not mistaken scp works in the following way: it starts scp
|process on the remote machine, passes the appropriate string to it and
|then does all the necessary operation to get the data transferred. It's
|important to note that the passed string undergoes shell expansion on the
|remote side:
|scp remote:dir/* .
|works 'as expected' bringing all the remote files to local dir. This
|actually explains all the cases below:

I assume you mean:

   scp remote:dir/\* .

As written, your example expands in the local shell.
