Good point.  I hadn't thought about how the wildcards were expanded.  

Actually, I do use cygwin bash, but I had a .bat file that I use to update my
TAGS table.  I switched that to a shell script, and things work again.

It would still be convenient, IMO, to have wildcard expansion inside the etags
utility, since it used to be there, but it's not a show-stopper.
