      here is a patch, that makes findfile() behave as expected. Problem is,
      findfile() currently expects wildcards to be only after a valid
      directory name and for cases like findfile('test19.in', 'src/test*') (in
      Vim source directory), it tries to find a file 'test19.in' in a
      directory vim/src/test/ which doesn't exists and therefore fails.

      Patch contains a test.

      "Sie servieren heute Hasenbraten, las ich draußen", sagte der Beamte der
      Gewerbeaufsicht. "Reiner Hasenbraten?"
      "Mit etwas Pferd", gestand der Gastronom.
      "In welchem Verhältnis?"
      "50 zu 50: Ein Hase, ein Pferd."
