I've verified this in 21.5.20. So, I don't think upgrading to 21.4.17
For some reason, when the match matches the entire content of a whole
line except the newline, the loop skips over the next line. This is
quite peculiar, and clearly a bug. It's going to take a while to fix,
I'm afraid; I'm not sure where the problem is going to be.
