That's weird. The match-data function returns a copy of the
(insert "a b")
(search-forward "b" nil t)
(eq (match-data) (match-data)))
It means two match-data are not identical Lisp objects even if
they are the same values. And the save-match-data macro saves
and restores the return value of the match-data function, so I
think it is hard to destroy the saved value by performing setcar
or any other functions. However, I found Kyle's comment in the
;; It appears that get-buffer-create clobbers the match-data.
Although I may misread what Kyle really meant, we may have to
use save-match-data as follows if it generally occurs literally,
since the with-temp-buffer macro uses get-buffer-create:
(defun w3m-decode-entities-string (str)
"Decode entities in the string STR."
However, I have not seen such a problem. Does anyone know what
