While tracking down the "watch add" bug I started working on in February, I noticed an inconsistency with the behaviour of expand_wild() between the Cygwin version, and the Visual Studio version.

If you call expand_wild() and pass it "." as an argument, the Visual Studio version converts it to the current directory name (i.e. if the current directory is c:\some_path\directory\, "." becomes "directory"). Under cygwin, it remains as "."

Which is the correct and expected behaviour? I suspect it's cygwin, but I'd like to make sure before I submit any patches.
