Bug#67921: glob(3) doesn't treat \ correctly, period.

retitle 67921 glob(3) doesn't treat \ correctly

It seems that it isn't just \/, glob(3) doesn't do \*/* correctly either.
The first * is treated correctly as a literal, but so is the \.  So it only
matchers \*/a, and not */a as expected.

This is more serious than \/ since \/ can be worked around by not having
the slash there, but \* cannot.
