Interesting, your code works, although I would expect it not to. I haven't seen this excerpt in documentation about local and globs so it's a bit of surprise for me, thanks.

There must be something about dual nature of globs - whatever experiment you devise it proves your theory, even if it contradicts other experiments.

    I think it may be that local *glob localizes the contents of *glob, not the glob itself. The docs could be read to support that.

    Or maybe it's just that the superposition-like nature of globs means that their behavior is governed by the Heisenburg Uncertainty Principle. Yeah, that's it...
