Yes, there was a misunderstanding (forget who, but remember mentioning it)
that the capture numbers of Gregex are static, match one is the first
capture () match two the second () even if they did not match.  Seems like
the code wasn't fixed though.  Filetypes_parse_error_message() just needs
to loop through the matches until it finds the first two that actually
