Changed syntax for rename

Following (I think) the recent update of the dll cygwin1.dll it seems that 
rename old new *
no longer works and the cause is the wildcard. You have to use something like
rename old new f*
and the command might need several invocations with minor variants to achieve all the required changes.
Is this change intended? Was the update to cygwin1.dll the cause? Any other consequences that users have found?
