WAD An oddity with the "Dir" command...

#1
This doesn't exactly fall into the category of "earth shattering", but I do find it quite odd and unexpected, and the question is whether there is something going on here I didn't expect and don't understand or is this a strange bug of some kind? And the issue can be illustrated quite simply and completely by the following:
Code:
   Mon  Jan 9, 2012   1:38:10p

ISO8601 plugin v1.1.1 loaded.
SafeChars plugin v1.5.7 loaded.

I don't think I have to spend a lot of time pointing out that the files that are displayed (all of them, actually) do not match the "pattern".

'Nough said.
