string.find bug

I have something like this in a loop

i=string.find(string,lookfor,icur,true)

In some cases, it seems that i is being set to 1 when a match is found at the end of the string, which caused my program to go into a loop. I fixed it by testing for i==nil or i<icur so that the test for not found would include i being set to 1 in addition to nil.

It's a complex program and I haven't been able to create a simple program that reproduces the situation.

Has anyone else ever encountered anything like this? Am I crazy? i should never get set to anything less than the starting position which is icur, right?
