hadoop dfs commands showing inconsistent behaviour..

                 Key: HADOOP-3088
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-3088
             Project: Hadoop Core
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: dfs
    Affects Versions: 0.15.3
            Reporter: Gautam Kowshik

We're seeing inconsistent behavior with hadoop commands

hadoop dfs -mkdir a/*
Will create a directory called '*' which cannot be deleted using rm (which successfully does
expand the *).

Additionally, I am having a problem I didn't have before:
If I want to dfsput large number of files without having to spawn the dfs -put for every file..
I cannot just do a 
hadoop dfs -put local_folder/file_* dfs_folder/

I get :
"Usage: java FsShell [-put <localsrc> <dst>]"

The shell does the expansion but -put has a problem with more than one. This is a fairly rudimentary
functionality to have that can improve data movement efficiency.

Also, can I have an alternative for this? I need to push all files that appear in a local
folder to the same dest folder again and again.
