Ok, now I got it, using wget and waiting 30 min for 800k ...

The test-script runs ok, but the original issue remains. No clue what

#! /bin/bash
(set -o globstar 2>/dev/null) && set -o globstar || shopt -s globstar
echo /dev/fd/**

 From what I observed opendir still succeeds in /dev/fd/3, and readdir
returns the name '0' as the first entry for example, and afterwards the  
/dev/fd-directory is full of invalid entries (/dev/fd/79 for example).

When I have time maybe I'll try to reproduce it with a standalone-program.

Seems I also have problems writing to this list, sorry if this came twice.
