netrw bug with :edit

Trevor D. Miller
I use `:edit **/*` to fuzzy find files. I like to use the default working directory settings (based on the project root, the directory I started vim in). This works great until I open netrw, then any subsequent searches no longer respect my wildignore. This seems to be a bug in netrw.

Here is a gif showing me removing everything from my .vimrc except wildignore and wildmenu, then using `:edit **/*` both before and after opening netrw:

As you can see, after opening netrw, the wildignore is no longer respected and the matches are different than before netrw was opened.

I'm on latest Vim installed via Homebrew on macOS. I haven't manually changed any files or plugins from the default `brew install vim` installation.
