fix regression in glob with literal . or .. path component
commit 8c4be3e2209d2a1d3874b8bc2b474668fcbbbac6 was written to preclude the GLOB_PERIOD extension from matching these directory entries, but also precluded literal matches. adjust the check that excludes . and .. to check whether the GLOB_PERIOD flag is in effect, so that it cannot alter behavior in cases governed by the standard, and also don't exclude . or .. in any case where normal glob behavior (fnmatch's FNM_PERIOD flag) would have included one or both of them (patterns such as ".*"). it's still not clear whether this is the preferred behavior for GLOB_PERIOD, but at least it's clear that it can no longer break applications which are not relying on quirks of a nonstandard feature.
