Subject: bug#5989: 23.1.96; bug 4209 not completely fixed (regression in re-search-forward)

I've discovered that bug #4209 was only partially fixed.  My original
recipe does not produce the bug in 23.1.96, but a slightly modified
one does:

;--- re-bug2.el starts here
(setq-default enable-multibyte-characters nil) ; this line is new

(set-buffer (get-buffer-create "*Test Buffer*"))

(insert "\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A")

(goto-char (point-min))

(message "looking-at: %s" (looking-at

(message "re-search-forward: %s"
         (re-search-forward "\\`\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A" 100 t))
;--- re-bug2.el ends here

At the command line, this is the expected output:

$ emacs --batch -Q -l re-bug2.el
looking-at: t
re-search-forward: 9

With emacs 23.1.96, the output I actually get is:
looking-at: t
re-search-forward: nil

This recipe is closer to what I'm actually doing:

;--- re-bug-file.el starts here
(find-file-literally "sample.file")

(goto-char (point-min))

(message "looking-at: %s" (looking-at

(message "re-search-forward: %s"
         (re-search-forward "\\`\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A" 100 t))
;--- re-bug-file.el ends here

It should have the same output as the previous recipe.  sample.file
must begin with those 8 bytes.  The following Perl command can create
a suitable file (just redirect its output to sample.file):

perl -e 'binmode STDOUT; print "\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0Aand more\n"'

The original patch proposed by Matthew Dempsky
(http://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=4209#12) appears to fix
the bug in all its variations, but the patch that was actually applied
by Kenichi Handa only fixes the original recipe.

I apologize for not trying the official patch sooner.  I just never
got around to rebuilding Emacs.
