Re: bash shell globbing not working anymore

Eureka!  I checked the cygcheck output and noticed that my cygwin dll was old even though "setup" thought I was up to date.  Maybe a previous cygwin update failed to complete properly?   I reinstalled the base cygwin package using setup and now it is all working fine.

I guess the current bash doesn't jive with  cygwin 1.5.19(0.150/4/2) 2006-01-16 15:01 i686 Cygwin,

Thanks everyone,

  Weird.  Let's have a look at your cygcheck -svr output then (as an
attachment, please).  Hold back on the strace logs just for now, though!
