Package: busybox
Version: 0.60.4-1

If I've got a directory with a file and an empty directory, and try to
do cp * foo/ (foo being the directory), the fileutils/coreutils cp will

cp: omitting directory "foo"

whereas the busybox cp will happily loop around and around, creating
foo/foo and foo/foo/foo and so on.

I've tried to reproduce the behaviour you report on recent busybox versions, 
but they behave just like the normal cp. I therefore think it's safe to 
assume that the bug has been fixed, and I'm hence closing this report. Thanks 
for your help!
