1480: "bad address" instead of "argument list too"

I get the following in a directory which has many files in it on a
Braodcom 1480:

2179:tbm@bigsur: ~/build/logs] grep foo *
zsh: bad address: grep

Normally, I'd expect an "zsh: argument list too long: grep" error.

I get this with different shells.  Hmm, that's interesting.  "echo *"
works.  I assume shell built-in commands work but others don't.

Any idea?
