I'm sorry.  Should I rather post it to emacs-devel or report bug?

The line 55-57 reads

# the following line must not be removed

and manually running

M-: (search-forward "\nBEGIN" nil t)

returns 1850.  The snippet you've included when run via M-:, works as
expected, i.e., no errors, moves to line 56, after first ‘N’.

Yes, I tried starting from scratch both via the build tool and fetching
a clean copy of the repository.  FWIW the file's coding is ‘euc-china’
and it has 565 lines (another reply was asking whether the file was a
big one).
