You could help, if you would, by creating a regression test script for any
known bug or patch, such as the bug(s) you are currently looking at.

Attached script checks for the original bug report (failure to find
match in rest of read-buffer after a potentail match is a non-word one)
and the bug then found with with the FC3 patches (bogus match found with
separate "tail then head" match).

Thanks very much, but I already added those tests to foad1.sh yesterday. Sorry for the mis-communication. I thought you mentioned that you were also looking at some other bugs, but perhaps I misunderstood. My fault. :-(
