I observe that in the original bug recipe:

  (set-buffer (get-buffer-create "*Test Buffer*"))
  (insert "\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A")
  (goto-char (point-min))
  (message "looking-at: %s" (looking-at "\\`\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A"))
  (message "re-search-forward: %s"
           (re-search-forward "\\`\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A" 100 t))

If we replace

  (re-search-forward "\\`\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A" 100 t))


  (re-search-forward (string-to-multibyte
                       "\\`\xC2\x4C\xEF\x77\xC6\x69\x8C\x0A") 100 t))

then the regexp match takes places correctly.  I'm not sure why the
looking-at call works, tho.
