Globbing doesn't do recursion

See original GitHub issue

To get recursion, I have to add an additional /** per directory level. So for a directory nested four levels in, I have to target **/**/**/**. Is this expected behavior? I’m on Windows, but I do everything in the bash - globbing always works as expected.

Here is the output:

C:\Temp\test\renamer-test>npm test

> renamer-test@1.0.0 test C:\Temp\test\renamer-test
> renamer -f .txt -r .yeah -d one/**

Dry run
√ one\file1.txt -> one\file1.yeah
√ one\file2.txt -> one\file2.yeah
√ one\file3.txt -> one\file3.yeah
√ one\two\file1.txt -> one\two\file1.yeah
√ one\two\file2.txt -> one\two\file2.yeah
√ one\two\file3.txt -> one\two\file3.yeah

ok, so basic recursion is working… using this one/two/three folder structure can you send me a command which demonstrates it failing? Cheers!
