Problem with occur: unexpected regexp mangling

Hi Colin,

I have a file with directives like <%?if%> <%?end%>

I wanted to use occur to find these and tried the obvious:


message was:

   occur-1: Not enough arguments for format string

I then tried


But that returned:

  Searched 1 buffer; no matches for `%\?'

I finally tried


And got what I wanted:

  Searched 1 buffer; 79 matches for `%?'

But that's a pretty strange REGEXP to match %?  :-)

I don't think 21.1 did that....
