[Bug-ed] Searching for multiple matches with \+ isn't working

I'm having an issue where using \+ to search for multiple matches isn't 
working. Am I doing something wrong?

I have GNU ed 1.14.2 installed on the latest macOS through Homebrew 
(https://brew.sh). Homebrew installed the executable as ged instead of ed, to 
not overtake the BSD ed that ships with macOS. I mention this so you understand 
why the command I'm running is ged instead of ed.

I see that 1.15 is in pre-release, but I don't see this issue addressed in the 
changelogs I'm seeing in the archives of this list.

Here are steps to reproduce:

$ ged -v
# Let's add a couple of lines.
# Great! Now, let's search for "o".
# Both lines match. Perfect. Now, let's search for multiple "o"s.
# Not found? :-(
