 If a symlink doesn't point to a existing file/dir, glob
overlooks it. I'm pretty sure this is a bug because glob
should return everything existing in the pattern. glob in
php 4.3.9 has the same bug.

Sorry, but your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.  For a
list of more appropriate places to ask for help using PHP, please
visit as this bug system is not the
appropriate forum for asking support questions. 

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

It is a bug in libc which implements glob(). PHP simply returns what the libc functions returns.
