        The problem is that if there's a directory or symlink called
"/:", then

        M-x find-file /:/a/b/*

doesn't work: it creates an empty buffer called "*" corresponding to
the file "/a/b/*", rather than opening all files in /:/a/b . I don't
see any obvious ways to configure Emacs to do so, or to escape the
pathname.
