This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug.  If you can, give
a recipe starting from `emacs -Q':

I set search-whitespace-regexp to [ \t\r\n]+ in customise as suggested
in the documentation but when I do a isearch-forward-regexp the space
character only matches a literal space.

 '(search-whitespace-regexp "[ \\t\\r\\n]+"))

is the line from .emacs

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
For information about debugging Emacs, please read the file
