I would suspect you're right - I just tried on my Fedora 12 system
(coreuitls 7.6, which is not the current release) and got the expected

address@hidden ~]$ mkdir test
address@hidden ~]$ cd test/
address@hidden test]$ ls
address@hidden test]$ mkdir dir1 dir2
address@hidden test]$ rm -rf dir1 dir2 f*
address@hidden test]$ ls -la
total 8

address@hidden test]$

What version of coreutils and what shell are you using, and on what
operating system?
