cygwin not showing afp files since update

# Since we updated to 2-10-0.1, something in cygwin makes some files
hidden in some cases.

# Just listing with the name works
$ ls -n RSC0388_618C5.afp
-rw-rw-rw-+ 1 1558598 1049089 198483 May  2 14:15 RSC0388_618C5.afp
$ ls RSC0388_618C5.afp

The filesystem globbing when using ls does not see the same file
$ ls *.afp
ls: cannot access '*.afp': No such file or directory

# if I copy the file in cygwin the user name and domain are different
and now I am allowed to see them
$ cp RSC0388_618C5.afp my_RSC0388_618C5.afp
$ ls -n *.afp
-rw-rw-r--+ 1 544 1049089 198483 May  2 15:50 my_RSC0388_618C5.afp

This was in 64 bit cygwin.  I installed an old 32 bit cygwin alongside
and it sees the files.

Please help.
