grep (GNU grep) 2.4.2

If I try a recursive grep and the current directory does not contain at 
least one file in the list, I get an error (even if a subdirectory does)

C:\Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7>grep --recursive WM_PAINT *.h
grep: *.h: Invalid argument

C:\Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7>cd PlatformSDK\Include

C:\Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\PlatformSDK\Include>grep --recursive 
TextServ.h:     //@cmember Send a WM_PAINT to the window
WindowsX.h:#define HANDLE_WM_PAINT(hwnd, wParam, lParam, fn) \
