in reply to glob problem...

How odd this may seem, it is a documented function of glob. From the docs:

A glob evaluates its (embedded) argument only when it is starting a new list. All values must be read before it will start over. In a list context this isn't important, because you automatically get them all anyway. In a scalar context, however, the operator returns the next value each time it is called, or a FALSE value if you've just run out. Again, FALSE is returned only once. So if you're expecting a single value from a glob, it is much better to say ($file) = <blurch*>;
