I assume there was some subtle change in coreutils and/or bash that
triggered finding that bug.

I don't see a change in ln in the new coreutils package.
What's the command line ln sees? ... I mean it's not a problem
for ln to create such a link:

$ ls -ldog \*.ctx
lrwxrwxrwx 1 11 May 3 16:35 *.ctx -> a/b/c/*.ctx

ln (or better the kernel) even permits such a symlink to itself:

$ ln -sv '*.ctx' '*.ctx'
'*.ctx' -> '*.ctx'

$ ls -ldog \*.ctx
lrwxrwxrwx 1 5 May 3 16:38 *.ctx -> *.ctx
