Follow-up Comment #4, bug #52018 (project make):

You'd have to run bleeding-edge-from-git glibc to get the new behavior, or
copy glob.c from bleeding-edge Gnulib and use that instead of glibc glob.

The new implementation will use gl_lstat when testing for existence, and will
use gl_stat only when testing for directories. However, you shouldn't assume
this; e.g., the implementation is free to use only gl_lstat if it wants to.

Your idea for a test case sounds good.
