bug#25133: 26.0.50; compile.el multiline regexp handling

From: Felix Klock
Subject: bug#25133: 26.0.50; compile.el multiline regexp handling
Date: Wed, 7 Dec 2016 15:11:48 -1000

Multiline compilation regexps do not reliably match.

I have attached two files to this email: demo-twoline.el and

Steps to reproduce:

1. Start `emacs -Q`
2. M-x load-file demo-twoline.el
3. M-x compile <enter>
4. Observe not all emitted errors are matched by compilation-mode

The above steps run the `demo-twoline2.sh` shell script as the
compile-command, thus emulating something similar to the compiler error
messages in the compiler that I use. It emits nine such messages, but
not all of the emitted errors are matched as errors by compile.el. You
can tell this by the fact that only some are highlighted accordingly,
and also that hitting the <tab> key to cycle through them skips some of
the emitted errors.

(A colleague and I hypothesize that one likely component of this bug is
the way that compile.el, specifically the
compilation-next-single-property-change function, works in 500 character
chunks. This, combined (we think) with line-based processing elsewhere
in compile.el, yields scenarios where regexps fail to match. At the very
least, when I remove the chunking strategy from compile.el by
unconditionally using `(or limit (point-max))` instead of taking the min
of that and `(+ position 500)`, then the problem does not appear to
arise anymore for me.)
