Err, that's embarassing. Thanks for finding it.

Re-reading the thread, I don't see where a difference between "\000" and
"<actual NUL>" is mentionned.

I do, however, see some confusion between "\000" (a string of one NUL
char) and "\\000" (a string of 4 chars : backslash, followed by three
0's), e.g. the regexp "^aPDU[^\\000]+[}]+?$" is mentionned (at
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnu-emacs/2014-04/msg00077.html)

Perhaps that would explain the oddities ?
