I don't quite understand.  As in, you do C-s to search for "^a[ ]
+regexp", it doesn't match, so then it works as if you did C-M-s (or M-
r in isearch-mode) so it interprets the string as a regexp?  Why
wouldn't you just use C-M-s (or M-r from isearch-mode)?

Simple:  I didn't know M-r switched between word and regexp search.
