Hi Handa-san,

Could you take a look at this bug report?  Thanks.

Here, the failing case is:

П          = 1055 = 10000011111
inverse(П) = 1087 = 10000111111

whereas the case that works (by setting boyer_moore_ok to 0) is

Р          = 1056 = 10000100000
inverse(Р) = 1088 = 10001000000

I've indicated the last 6 bits, according to the logic in search_buffer
(which I don't fully understand).
