* is a legal character for ls but perhaps not cygpath? I don't know.
No files or directories are using * in the name.
Not sure about incorrect terminal settings as I never touched any.
It shows up in mintty and ssh equally. The characters that appear vary.
Some non-existent paths do *not* produce the gibberish.
%%%cygpath -w /aaa/bbb/*
Yes, but I found something interesting when I did this:
echo "$(cygpath -w /usr/non-existent/*)" > mytemp
od -c mytemp
revealed that there is a three-byte sequence after the
and before the newline added by echo. I guess it's
some representation of * that does not show up on the
terminal, but it did strike me as a little strange ...
