: (another)Part of DOS is broken.

This is exactly what I would expect. The problem arises when you use
long filenames. All of the filenames you use here are less than 8
characters, so the long filename and the short filename are the same.
If you have these two files in the same directory
A long file name.txt
doing 'dir along*.*' will show both files. Try doing 'dir /x' to show
both long and short filenames and you'll see what I mean. The first
filename will (probably, the number following the tilde may be different
depending on what other files are/were in that directory, and if the
number is multiple digits, that part before the tilde will be shorter to
compensate and make the filename 8 characters) show up as alongf~1.txt.
