bug#5189: BibTeX mode problems: non-existent directories, faulty regexp

From: Michael Ernst
Subject: bug#5189: BibTeX mode problems: non-existent directories, faulty regexp-opt
Date: Fri, 11 Dec 2009 22:40:14 -0800 (PST)

bibtex.el uses regexp-opt, which introduces new capturing parentheses that
throw off variables like bibtex-type-in-head, which is a regexp
subexpression number.  (Really, regexp-opt should be rewritten to only use
non-capturing parentheses!)

The below patch corrects the problem.

                    -Michael Ernst

My patches are against:
  GNU Emacs 23.1.1 (i486-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.18.3) of 2009-11-10 on 
vernadsky, modified by Debian
but the problem also exists in the Emacs CVS repository.

ChangeLog entry:

2009-12-11  Michael Ernst  <address@hidden>

        * bibtex.el (bibtex-entry-type): Remove regexp-opt, which throws
        off regexp subexpression numbering.
