Probably the most likly cause of these files is when you type ">" instead of
"." (easy to do since they are on the same key).
if you type "ls filename>*" when you intended "ls filename.*" then you get
the filename star created with zero bytes - have a look in the history file
for your shell and see can you find such a command typed - of course it can
be commands other then ls.
Also it may depend on the shell you are using (but i don't know) I tested it
with bash on Linux and on AIX.
