bash problems: with cp with a for loop

The following works with bash 1.14.0(5) under SCO but 
not with bash-1.14.7(5) under gnuwin32 (i.e., the bash 
that came with b18).  

  for fname in `ls`
  do cp $fname /tmp; done

I get an error such as the following for each filename 
`ls` spits out:

  cp: Acr99.tmp: No such file or directory

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong or if this is a 
known problem with gnuwin32 bash?
