Re: Minor diff: /bin/ksh.exe

Dave: Let's put this prob on hold for a while. At least til I investigate it some more. Something is acting weird. This prob has disappeared! I tried unloading everything just in case some name cache had it already expanded. I did get correct results from using latest pdksh. Weird.

between Cygwin 1.5 & 1.7 First, the above is a older version of pdksh
that I had to tweek the cygwin sources a l-o-n-g time ago. Under 1.5,
the following does work properly:
$ cd /c/Doc*/Paul/App*/Moz*/Fire*/Pro*/*default/

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?
