Ouch... I feel like I deserve an entry on http://failblog.org/
Somehow I assumed that globDir has type
[Pattern] -> FilePath -> IO [FilePath]
where in reality it has type
[Pattern] -> FilePath -> IO ([[FilePath]], [FilePath])

When I saw lots of files that didn't match my query I thought there is a bug...
I'll certainly doublecheck any bug reports before submitting.
Sorry for the noise.

All best
