Actually, the problem seems to be in the `insert-directory-wildcard-in-dir-p' 
which wrongly splits "c:/tmp/dir*/*.txt" in ("c:/tmp/" . "dir*/*.txt") instead 
("c:/tmp/dir*/" . "*.txt")

Forget this (wrong) diagnostic.

The culprit is actually 

(let ((default-directory "c:/tmp/"))
  (eshell-extended-glob "dir*/*.txt"))

which fails to expand the wildcards (when `file-expand-wildcards' succeeds).
Thank you Fabrice,
that's interesing. I am just wondering if `eshell-extended-glob' gets confused with the Windows path, i mean, the disk name 'c:' in front.

Could you check if the following works?
M-x eshell RET
cd "c:/tmp"
ls -l dir*/*.txt

I am also curious if:
M-: (equal temporary-file-directory "c:/tmp/") RET
=> t

Thank you,
