me understand what was going on.  It turns out that there were two

"<=", and not strictly less-than.  This means that if the sequence is
the last thing in the string (or only thing) it will not be found.
The other bug had the end-needle parameter be 1 too short, which means
that this would succeed with  only the first 3 bytes of the sequence
(now called 'tail'), thus matching many more things than it should
(provided it got the chance to match at all given the first bug).

turned off afterwards if they were not on to begin with.

This was introduced in commit b20c4ee1f, which did so to stop $x | "0"
from coercing the rhs and making it behave differently the second
time through.

What that commit did not take into account was that the read-only
flag is set on cow scalars, and the same pp function is used for the
assignment forms.  So it was turning off the numeric flags after
$cow |= 1, leaving $cow undef.

I made this numeric flag-twiddling apply only to read-only scalars
(supposedly), because that seemed the most conservative and acceptable
change.  I am actually in favour of extending it to all scalars, to
make these operators less surprising.  For that reason, this commit
preserves the current behaviour with cows in the non-assignment case:
they don’t get coerced into numbers.  Changing them to work the same
way as non-cow writable scalars would make things more consistent, but
more consistently buggy.  I would like to make this non-coercion apply
to all scalars in 5.18.

This commit simply skips the flag-twiddling on the lhs in the assign-
ment case.
