tcl stuck

hi guyz,

I have two tcl scripts, one script download files using sftp and save it to local drive. It takes two arguments one as directory where to download and 2nd file name. This script is working fine with "?" Question Marks and wildcards (*)

like ./ $filename $dir

but i have another script which upload the file to an internet server through scp, using same logic .. BUT, the 2nd script fails with question marks and wildcards (*), but ok with exact file names.

This is quit strange for me
#! /usr/bin/expect -f

set timeout 300
set HOST "exserver"
set USER "username1"
set PASSWORD "password1"
set filename [lindex $argv 0]
set local_directory [lindex $argv 1]

spawn /usr/bin/sftp $USER@$HOST
expect "password:"
send "$PASSWORD\r";
expect "sftp>"
send "cd somedir\r"
expect "sftp>"
send "lcd $local_directory\r"
expect "sftp>"
send "get $filename\r"
expect "sftp>"
send "bye\r"
expect eof
#! /usr/bin/expect -f

set timeout 300
set HOST "intserver"
set USER "username2"
set PASSWORD "password2"
set filename [lindex $argv 0]
set local_directory [lindex $argv 1]

spawn /usr/bin/scp $local_directory/$filename $USER@$HOST:/location/path/in
expect "password:"
send "$PASSWORD\r";
expect eof
Now why this scp is not working with wildcards or question marks in file-name?

Edit: Sorry for the title.
