Well, then how do you account for it working in perl5.005_03? It works
for both a good match and a bad (just tested it).

IMO this really has to work in order for me to be able to grep through
C/C++ code. I can't have something like:

a = '0   // missing ' - core???

coring my program (coring because of a syntax error in the C!). If you
don't have a fix, do you have a suggestion for a workaround? ( I hasten
to add, if there is a workaround necessary, then there is also a
backwards compatibility issue here.)
