There is no difference in render output between a stand-alone glow and a
light source glow -- the difference you're seeing is caused by the
differences in the glow parameters.

As for the other parameters (camera and/or glow being located inside an
object, with hollow on or off) I think there's indeed something strange
going on, but we'll need a comparison with MegaPOV output to decide what
to do about it.
