This was wrong and introduced a regression: literal . and .. in paths
passed into glob result in no results. I really should have held off
on it because determining the preferred behavior is complicated. But
in any case, a change which alters behavior without GLOB_PERIOD being
set in the flags was wrong. I'll be committing a fix soon.

Due to this and a couple small other bugs/regressions, I think it will
make sense to make another release right away, to have a solid "works
out of the box without patching" one as the latest. Please let me know
if you spot other regressions so fixes can be included.
