since Bash-5.1-rc1 <CTRL-R> doesn't work for me as previously.
I have the following entries in my history:
man a
man b

Now I type '<CTRL-R> m a n' and get:
(reverse-i-search)`man': man b

Now I type '<CTRL-R>' again.
What I would expect (and what I got with 5.0) is:
(reverse-i-search)`man': man a

Instead I get
(reverse-i-search)`': man b

Note the empty search string.

Thanks for the report. It's not easy to reproduce, and, as you later note,
requires the `C' or `POSIX' locales and things to be done in a certain

BTW, if you want me to check it you could send me a patch or push
a commit to git.savannah.gnu.org/git/bash.
