Actually, I would expect these to behave more like git describes match and exclude which don't have an extra /*. It seems natural to me that glob would always add an extra glob, but.. I don't recall if match and exlude do so.

That being said, if we think the extra glob would not cause problems and generally do what people mean... I guess consistent with --glob would be good... But it's definitely not what I'd expect at first glance.
