FFIND needs work

(continuing what started in the thread on REGDIR). Here's another, seemingly different, failure. See below, in a pipe, FFIND /kmve"1{5}" finds the first several occurrences of "11111" ... then a bogus line is output ... then the same number over and over. I don't know how long that would have continued; I stopped it after about 10 minutes.

Code:
v:\> head /n3 1to1300000.txt & echo ... & tail /n3 1to1300000.txt
1
2
3
...
1299998
1299999
1300000

v:\> type 1to1300000.txt | ffind /mkve"1{5}"
