two bugs in reference implementation of SRFI 13 Jamison Hope 24 Dec 2011 19:48 UTC

A Kawa user just discovered a bug in string-contains, which I tracked
down to the reference implementation of make-kmp-restart-vector.

string-parse-start+end is documented to return three values:
"rest start end", but in make-kmp-restart-vector its result is bound
to two variables (start end). I found the same issue in
string-kmp-partial-search, which also attempts to capture only the
"start" and "end" values.

The fix in both places is to call string-parse-final-start+end instead,
which strips off the first unwanted rest value from string-parse-start
