The example posted in [1] still behaves the same.

> =(";a;"):gsub("a-", "ITEM")

I.e. the substring 'a' in ";a;" is not recognized as an instance
of the pattern "a-".

The new behaviour is so far documented only in the list
of changes [2], not in the manual. Thus, it is not possible
to work out what the new behaviour should be, but the poster
of [1] clearly expected "ITEM;ITEMITEM;ITEM".
