[bug-gawk] gawk 4.1.4: carriage returns not tacitly swollowed

Dear All,

Applying `gawk "/^\\w+$/{print}"` to a CRLF file with simple words in each
line prints nothing, i.e. the carriage return is not silently digested by
gawk which I would expect it to do and IIRC gawk used to do up some time in
the past. Running a LF copy of the CRLF file against this code, emits all

I am just wondering if this should considered a bug, since a line end should
always read as '(\r\n|\r|\n)'? I cannot dig into that a little bit more
right now, because I am currently not able to clone the git repository
(probably due to some savannah issue).

Living on Win10 with cygwin's gawk 4.1.4.
