glob() returns duplicate values ​​when the number of files is 65534 or more.

It occurs only in Windows PHP ver 7.4.9 or earlier, not in 8.0 or Linux.

When number of files increase, duplicate values also increase.

When I tried Test script $max=1000000, result is below.
Duplicated test/0000065534.txt->2
Duplicated test/0000131069.txt->2
Duplicated test/0000196604.txt->2
Duplicated test/0000262139.txt->2
Duplicated test/0000327674.txt->2

Duplicated test/0000851954.txt->2
Duplicated test/0000917489.txt->2
Duplicated test/0000983024.txt->2

Test script:
for ($i=1;$i<=$max;$i++){

echo count($files)."\n";

foreach ($check as $key=>$value){
	if ($value!=1){
		echo "Duplicated ".$key."->".$value."\n";

Expected result:

Actual result:
Duplicated test/0000065534.txt->2

This is a duplicate of bug #36365.  The fix for that bug cannot be
backported, because it breaks the ABI.
