The command line tool "unrar" doesn't seem to like it very much when trying to extract all the files from several archive.

This for example does not work, and only extracts the files from the first archive it finds:

unrar e *.rar

The work around, stupid enough is simple:

unrar e '*.rar'

Hope this is useful for someone.
