@antoine: no, my description involves recursion.  It assumes that the path portion of the glob specifies the directories to *start* from, but that the filename glob portion then applies recursively to any of those start directories.

The alternative interpretation of the pattern, that it is fully matched against the CWD, takes you back to having to explain what '..' means when matched against a given location in the recursion, starting with the CWD.  I clearly don't have a good intuition about that.
