I think this is a bug in the dfa and regexp libraries that gawk uses,

further, or to explain to me what I'm doing wrong.
I am now convinced that this is a bug in the GNULIB regex and dfa
library routines.  I don't know if the GNULIB guys will fix it or not;
doing so is definitely beyond my skill level.


Arnold - thanks for the followup! Is there a link you could provide to
the GNULIB bug report just so we have a reference?

https://lists.gnu.org/r/bug-gnulib/2021-07/msg00026.html is the
start of the thread.

I am not optimistic.


Yeah, they don't seem particularly keen to actually address the issue. Oh, well, you did what you could to let them know about it and correct their misunderstanding about it and even point them to the area of their code where the bug probably lies so now it's up to them.

Thanks again for following up on this.
