[perl #112894] Use of (?| ...) breaks \G or vice-versa
Message ID:
Hrm, this is an unfortunate side effect of how the implementation of 
C< (?|..) > and (?-1) work together.  The \G is actually irrelevant as 
without it the pattern matches at a different place and does not use (?
-1) to match.

I had hoped that named captures would solve this problem, but they suffer 
from the same thing. I will investigate further.
