Comment(by zbigniew):

 Appears to be a behavior change (bug, I think) in string-search-positions,
 because irregex-match-start-index now throws an error instead of returning
 #f.  Below is a simplified test case.


 #;5> (string-search-positions "(foo)|(bar)|(baz)" "bar")
 ((0 3) (#f #f) (0 3) (#f #f))


 #;2> (string-search-positions "(foo)|(bar)|(baz)" "bar")
 Error: (irregex-match-start-index) not a valid index
 #<regexp-match (3 submatches)>

 The actual use case is a SRE like (or rx1 rx2 rx3) where the rx* contain
 submatches; in this case I want to ignore the submatches and just get the
 positions, which should be in the car of the result.  However, 4.6.2 just
 refuses to build the result.  Help?
