Why is this a bug?  i.e. is there a /u*r directory, and do its permissions

Yes, in the shell (which is normally what runs this command), "cd /u*r"
will probably succeed by expanding "/u*r" to "/usr".
But the hack I added to "M-x compile" which tries to recognize a leading
"cd<blabla>" gets in the way.

Ah, I see.

Seems like after extracting the <blabla> arg and substituting the values
of any referenced environment variables (already implemented by the
current hack), you could pass the result to file-expand-wildcards.  Then
check that there is only a single directory in the result, and pass that
directory to `cd'.
