Current sources interpret this as asking to dump a table named "*".
There was never any support for wildcards in the table parameter,
except for a mistaken comment in pg_dump --help.

I would not mind seeing support for actual pattern matching
(eg "--table=foo*" to select all tables beginning with "foo"),
but I don't see much value in supporting just table=*.  You can
get that result by leaving off the --table switch.
