      Changed the semantics of file globbing with a PathFilter (using the globStatus method of FileSystem). Previously, the filtering was too restrictive, so that a glob of /*/* and a filter that only accepts /a/b would not have matched /a/b. With this change /a/b does match.

      Changed the semantics of file globbing with a PathFilter (using the globStatus method of FileSystem). Previously, the filtering was too restrictive, so that a glob of /*/* and a filter that only accepts /a/b would not have matched /a/b. With this change /a/b does match.

      Description

      Consider the file hierarchy

      /a
      /a/b
      

      Calling the globStatus method on FileSystem with a path of

      /*/*

      and a PathFilter that only accepts /a/b returns no matches. It should return a single match: /a/b.
