  LERN2SHELL.  Try "echo /c/Doc*/Paul/App*/Moz*/Fire*/Pro*/*default/" to see if
you've actually got a real path there, or no matching path, or several matching
paths. Try stripping components off one by one and seeing which one you made a
mistake in.  The multiple expansions work just fine for me:

$ PS1="$ " pdksh
$ cd /cygdrive/c/Doc*/Adm*/App*/Moz*/Fire*/Pro*/*default/
$ pwd
/cygdrive/c/Documents and Settings/Administrator/Application

  Also, LERN2BUGREPORT.  You told us all about how you feel, but completely
omitted the crucial detail of WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENS when you try it.  Error
message?  No error message?  Boxing glove on a spring comes out of your computer
and punches you in the nose?
