Aha!  Yes, that was it.

An example would be helpful too I think:  does the search just skip over all
material until it finds the closing bracket, then look for the next
character in the search string, e.g. "func\{local" as a search string would
not match "func{fruit, peel,  local1}" but would match "func{fruit, peel}
local slices=nil"? Is the closing bracket not specified in the search
