There is a bug with DiskFile::FindFiles (diskfile.cpp) on
the UNIX verision of par2cmdline-0.4:
Directories (and non-regular files like sockets) which are
matched by wildcards (e.g. '*') are included in the file
list, causing par2 to die later because directories (and
specials) are not allowed.
I've created (and attached :)) a patch for this issue
(patch was made against version 0.4). It simply ignores
anything which matches the wildcard, but is NOT a
*regular* file. I chose to restrict to regular files
because running par2 on anything else is meaningless.
There is no generally usable workaround for this issue:
Although using `find ... -not -type d` may work in some
circumstances, it does not work in my case, because of
the command line length limit.
