Try "noglob" if your shell is not Cygwin-aware.
Eh? The problem is that it doesn't glob when it should. The shell is
standard CMD.EXE, ie Windows console.

The shell (Cmd) does the globbing. Describe your problem in a Microsoft newsgroup.

Hang on though, isn't there some code in the cygwin dll to do globbing for just this situation, when you want to launch a cygwin executable from a non-cygwin context? Perhaps that code has a problem with multi-byte chars or something; this could be a cygwin bug, couldn't it?

Yep. That's why I made my suggestion. If that works, then it's a work-around and a confirmation of a bug in Cygwin. If it doesn't, then it suggests (to me) some issue in 'ls'.
