I meam using C-x C-e.  It looks like you are indeed right and that 
match-beginning and match-end can only be used programmatically.  I was
using edebug and getting strange values evaluating them (manually).  I
thought I had done that before - but clearly not.

Sorry but I don't know how to close the bug report.
