expand_wild is called from many places.  Your patch removed the
directory information, which breaks the initial calls in the functions
where you invoke cvs from a directory outside the repository.
expand_wild has very defined semantics - it's supposed to replicate
the unix shell expansion.  Changing it would mean a lot of changes to
the rest of cvs.
