It's certainly plausible.

Do you really mean "glob"/"noglob"?  I thought that meant what it says,
controlling all globbing.  I can't see any evidence it's related to
emulation --- it's got the "emulate" attribute, so is affected by
"emulate" without -R but it's on in all emulations.  (Not sure what use
that combination is... Oh, I see, if you turned it off yourself for some
reason, then as soon as you try to set up for any standard emulation it
goes back on again.)

I think the real question is whether kshglob should actually be on in sh
emulation nowadays.
