    They do match.  The regex in the awk script is exactly the
    same (only some \X have been replaced with [X]).

    Here are the facts:

    Two machines with Perl 5.005_02 show the problem, two other
    machines (your's included) with Perl 5.005_03 don't.

    I've just finished testing the AWK script with gawk 3.0.6
    under Win98.  It works flawlessly and produces the same
    output as under Unix.  Additionally, I've now verified that
    Solaris' nawk handles the script.

    I'm quite reluctant to spend time on upgrading Perl or trying
    to find a workaround for a bug in Perl, if we have a suitable
    solution for all those problems at hand.

    OtherBill/anyone else? Anything to add?
