When globbing, the busybox shell seems not to handle directory symlinks
as directories. Example:

$ echo /proc/ide/hd*/driver

On my computer, hda, hdb, and hdd are symlinks to ide0/hda, ide0/hdb,
and ide1/hdd, which are directories containing a file called "driver",
so I expected the output

/proc/ide/hda/driver /proc/ide/hdb/driver /proc/ide/hdd/driver

I've tested this on recent busybox versions, like the one in unstable, and 
they have the behaviour you expected. I'm therefore closing this bug now, 
thanks for reporting.
