Actually never mind about part 3 - that's only an issue when using '*' shell expansion instead of '.'. Here's a revised patch.

Here's a small patch for the manual, secton 4.6. This patch fixes the following issues:

1. Note says "short option forms" but then gives long option syntax.
2. Stray ')' in example that avoids subshells
3. Add a note about hidden directories and files, as this is probably notable.
