|It would appear that Dir.glob() will not accept wildcards in the first element of an absolute path.  Why this is so I don't know.  It doesn't seem to do much since you can still do Dir.chdir("/") then use relative paths..... This behavior is not documented in the 1.4 manual for Dir.glob.

It's a bug in 1.4.3.  Try upgrading to 1.4.4.
