Re: Ctrl+R breaks `less' searches

Use of Ctrl+R in a `less' search breaks the search unless a search has

1.7.3-1 fixed a lot of more important things, but unfortunately it didn't fix this one. A standard search must succeed before a ~R (Regex-off) search will succeed. So if I'm searching for something which requires regular expressions to be off, I'll never find it unless I first search for something that doesn't require Regex-off.

I sent the cygcheck output with the original report last week. Do you
need another one?

No what you sent was fine. You're covered unless someone requests more data.
