The reason is that when you run the "dir" command Samba does the

processes the command and has no problems.

Not completely so. Issuing the command using the client causes that
the wildcards are sent to the server where globbing is handled..
there's also where the error occurs. When you mount it first and you
do the 'ls' command, your local BASH (not 'ls') handles the globbing
(wildcards) so it doesn't even arrive at the smb server.
