Interesting.  Bug #8429 was not closed.

And yes, I tested it today before I sent that mail, starting from emacs -Q with
this build:

In GNU Emacs (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600)
 of 2013-01-30 on ODIEONE
Bzr revision: 111631 address@hidden
Windowing system distributor `Microsoft Corp.', version 5.1.2600
Configured using:
 `configure --with-gcc (4.7) --no-opt --enable-checking --cflags
 -IC:/Devel/emacs/build/include --ldflags -LC:/Devel/emacs/build/lib'

I followed the recipe in the bug report.  At first I thought it was fixed, but
then I saw that there were still plenty of occurrences of the regexp matches
farther down in the buffer.  Try it and see what you find.

I used Emacs on Windows with grep from Cygwin, but that should not make any
