Hi John, I'm pottering along, thank you. Thanks for the bug report. It turns
out to be a bug in the 10.xx PCRE2 series as well. When testing for anchoring,
a missing second branch in a condition was being ignored - of course it should
be "not anchored". Luckily it is a small patch, only 1 line for PCRE2, but this
slightly larger one for PCRE1 8.42. I haven't thought about when to release
8.43 yet. The 8.xx series (as I'm sure you know) is obsolescent and I'm only
fixing straightforward bugs now.
