[perl #92258] <$fh> hangs on a glob copy

Opening a file handle to \$glob causes assertion failures
(under debugging) or hangs or other erratic behaviour without
debugging. This might even crash in some cases.

It never really worked properly, but it didn’t start hanging
apparently until 5.12.2 and 5.14.0.
