What is glomming?

There is a warning with -DDEBUG which mentions the term "glomming". What does this phrase mean?

WARNING: file compiler/simplCore/OccurAnal.hs, line 65
  Glomming in CLabel: [sgbA :->]

In OccurAnal there is a note which explains the term but it would be good to get a definition in a more visible place.
