can you be sure that nullglob must be unset after the function?
Could it be that nullglob was already set in the beginning?

I think you're missing the point of the mailing list.
on the mailing list, there are multiple people interested in the releng
code.  Multiple people who can review your stuff and comment it.
It's pointless to put all the work on my shoulders, and I only when I
say it looks good, to send it to the ML.
It's ok to get in touch with me for very specific questions, but for
stuff like this: Send it to ML right away, it's ok if there are still
problems in it, we can discuss it on the ML.
