I think this is a regexp bug

I’d greatly appreciate if anyone could explain what’s up with this:

$KCODE=‘u’

"Ã " =~ /Ã /i
=> 0

"Ã " =~ /[Ã ]/i
=> 0

“ā” =~ /ā/i
=> 0

“ā” =~ /[ā]/i
=> nil

That has to be a bug, right?

Maybe this is a good opportunity to start looking at oniguruma. Is
anyone aware of backward compatibility issues when going from the
regular Regexp to oniguruma?

I can’t reproduce it:

[email protected]:~/tmp$ cat foo.rb
$KCODE = ‘u’
puts "Ã " =~ /Ã /i
puts "Ã " =~ /[Ã ]/i
puts “ā” =~ /ā/i
puts “ā” =~ /[ā]/i
[email protected]:~/tmp$ ruby foo.rb

Ah, silly me I forgot to test on different versions. It
happens on 1.8.4 but neither on 1.8.5 or 1.8.6

Thanks for the sanity check.
