Here's a key sequence which searches a whitespace character with a non-

there (just an example):

M-C-s   \s-\S- <right>

According to the macro editor it is recorded like this:

;; Keyboard Macro Editor.  Press C-c C-c to finish; press C-x k RET to
;; Original keys: M-C-s \ s \ S <right>

Command: last-kbd-macro
Key: none


M-C-s                   ;; isearch-forward-regexp
\                       ;; self-insert-command
s                       ;; self-insert-command
\                       ;; self-insert-command
S                       ;; self-insert-command
<right>                   ;; forward-char-nomark

The dash (-) character is missing after the syntax matcher (\s and
\S), so the macro doesn't work at playback. Is it a bug?

GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2007-06-02 on RELEASE

Looks like it, but please try starting from

  emacs -Q

If the problem persists then report it as a bug.
