win32 recursive glob broken

When you enter a recursive grep command such as:
  grep -r searchstring *.c
You will get an invalid parameter error if there are no files matching *.c in the current directory (there may be files below the current directory).
To work around this, I've placed dummy text files called dummy.c in my search roots. Then everything works fine.
