That's what I've expected from the normal search, too.  And it seems to
be just that, but with the major annoyance of recognizing a subject like

  next-line, no worky!

as words "next-line,", "no", and "worky!".  So you'll find the bug with
keyword "no", but not with "next-line", because the comma is missing...

Bye,
