Bug of the week

Bug 18343 - itemOffset returns 0 when wholeMatches is true

This bug occurs only under certain conditions and is the bug of the week because the report made it easy for livecodepanos to determine those conditions.

To reproduce the bug the following conditions must be met:

  • the wholeMatches must be true
  • the string to search and the item searched for must not be unicode
  • the item found must be the second item in the list where the first is an empty item

Help needed!
