  "Find all matches for REGEXP in all marked files, recursively."

What does it mean to find matches in a particular marked file,
_recursively_?  This seems to be a nonsense description.

If what you mean is that the marked files in a marked _subdirectory_
are searched, and so on for its marked subdirs, recursively - then
say so.

If you don't mean something like that then I cannot imagine what this
means.  How can a _file_ (marked or not) be searched recursively?

In GNU Emacs (i686-w64-mingw32)
 of 2016-03-20
Windowing system distributor `Microsoft Corp.', version 6.1.7601
Configured using:
 `configure --host=i686-w64-mingw32 --without-dbus

Fixed, thanks.
