      wildmatch: change behavior of "foo**bar" in WM_PATHNAME mode · e5bbe09e
      Duy Nguyen authored
      In WM_PATHNAME mode (or FNM_PATHNAME), '*' does not match '/' and '**'
      can but only in three patterns:
      
      - '**/' matches zero or more leading directories
      - '/**/' matches zero or more directories in between
      - '/**' matches zero or more trailing directories/files
      
      When '**' is present but not in one of these patterns, the current
      behavior is consider the pattern invalid and stop matching. In other
      words, 'foo**bar' never matches anything, whatever you throw at it.
      
      This behavior is arguably a bit confusing partly because we can't
      really tell the user their pattern is invalid so that they can fix
      it. So instead, tolerate it and make '**' act like two regular '*'s
      (which is essentially the same as a single asterisk). This behavior
      seems more predictable.
