No. The only non-standard thing with my installation is that python
was installed by the Panda3D installation. I haven't changed ipython
in any way.

glob.glob("*") givs me the content of the current directory.

I get the same result as you.

I get the contents of C:\.
'pwd' shows me the path to the current directory.
'!cd' shows 'C:\'.
