it matched. It didn't do that because regex matching in general wasn't
reentrant, and it wasn't reentrant because regex bytecode programs are

I checked in some work that makes regex searching update syntax as needed.

It seems there were two separate problems.  The off-by-one error still
happens after your changes, so I pushed my patch to master.
