Summary0016822: sed-4.2.2-5.el7.x86_64 doesn't substitute specific match number properly
DescriptionTrying to substitute an alpha value TZ with TIMEZONE on the 7th match using sed 's/TZ/TIMEZONE/7' and it does not work. In fact, of the seven instances of TZ in my file (YML) I can either change them all with sed 's/TZ/TIMEZONE/' or sed 's/TZ/TIMEZONE/1g', but changing to subbing from the 2nd (or any other match) down does not work, it changes no values at all.

I'll be glad to offer any other help, but this one is a head scratcher.
Steps To Reproduceany simple sed subsitution on any match other than global does not work. Even matching on the first match changes all matches.
Additional InformationNone.
