I did the following:

% cd /tmp
% mkdir -p a/dir1/new a/dir1/cur
% mkdir -p b/dir1/new b/dir1/cur
% mkdir -p c/dir1/new c/dir1/cur
% ls -ld */dir1/new
drwxrwxr-x  2 steve  wheel  512 Nov  7 15:10 a/dir1/new/

System is:
FreeBSD wattres.Watt.COM 6.3-STABLE FreeBSD 6.3-STABLE #9: Tue May 13 16:06:34 PDT 2008     root at wattres.Watt.COM:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/WATTRES  i386

Source was probably updated a few hours before the kernel build time.

Shell doesn't seem to matter (have tried both tcsh and bash).

My cygwin installation seems to get it right.

Known issue?  A quick glance for "glob" in gnats didn't show anything promising.

   Free time?  There's no such thing.  It just comes in varying prices...
