You are right.

I was mistaken.  The same search hits are found in 22 (and before)
as now.  Somehow I thought I was seeing something different when
I tried 22 and 20 earlier today.

Yes, this is the same.  I will close this bug.

Funny that I never noticed this before.  I guess that in practice
it doesn't bite that often.  It is multiple matches in the same
line that makes this really stand out as weird behavior.
