irregex chunked matching breaks when using positive lookbehind with submatches

Reported by: sjamaan Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 4.9.0
Component: unknown Version: 4.8.x
Keywords: irregex Cc:
Estimated difficulty:


When using a custom, non-trivial chunker (ie, not the shipped string chunker), submatches in (positive) lookbehind patterns will be returned as string-chunker type chunks. This breaks the expectation of returning a chunk in our own custom type like we get with any other submatch.

This has been reported to Alex, and is included in the upstream test suite as a breaking test. Too complicated to make a simple test script for CHICKEN, but when fixed should be backported.

For now I hope we can get this into 4.9.0, but it may need to be postponed.

Making it minor, as not many people will be using the chunking API (and of those few people, using positive lookbehind with submatches).
