New issue 459 by Wildcard input path for proto files does not work in 2.5.0rc1

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  For proto file input path, protoc does not accept wildcard input path.
For example:
     protoc --java_out=. *.proto
This will result in an "Invalid Argument" failure.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

This used to work correctly under protoc 2.4.x release. By putting a wildcard path, protoc will compile all .proto files in the directory with a single command.

At a quick glance, the function CommandLineInterface::MakeInputsBeProtoPathRelative is failing to expand the relative path.

What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

  Win7 64 Bit. Protoc is compiled under VS2008SP1.

Please provide any additional information below.

   I am using 2.5.0rc1 release. Build Date appears to be Dec 4 2012.
