I barely misplace glass but when I do I get pissed because when I break it I am  unable to recover it. Is there any way to recover glass and re-place it some place else after it has already been placed? I recall being able to do so in 1.8 but it seems I can't since 1.0

You can get a Silk Touch pick.  That or use pistons for small distances.

Do you have a furnace? You'll need sand to retrieve glass.
You need fuel source and sand inside a furnace, then smelt the sand and done!

That's not retrieving the glass, that's making more glass.

Not helpful.

Any silk touch item can retreive glass, its the easy solution as you dont need high levels to get that enchant.

I believe that there are mods and deals with the devil to that effect.  I suggest the former.

So retrieval of glass for replacement is impossible?

Well, Silk touch is still a seemingly rare enchantment. I have enchanted over a dozen picks on SMP at levels 10-20 and only ever get efficiency or unbreaking (only on gold pick)

Is it such a big deal to simply make a bit more glass then you think you'll need so if you mess up you just use that extra glass?

Glass panes were retrievable in 1.8, but not so now.

You can retrieve glass with Silk Touch, not Glass Panes. As for retrieving glass, if you have no silk touch, either break it or use pistons, but honestly...break it.

If you are mad because of how long it takes to get sand, just dig under sandstone, places torches under the sand stone, then break the sand stone.
