It works as expected for me, running Emacs 22.1.1:

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

Command: last-kbd-macro
Key: none

Macro:

M-C-s                   ;; isearch-forward-regexp
\                       ;; self-insert-command
s-                      ;; self-insert-command * 2
\                       ;; self-insert-command
S-                      ;; self-insert-command * 2
<right>                 ;; forward-char

Can you reproduce the problem when you launch Emacs with no init files
(i.e., emacs -Q)?
