I think that's the important point. We should also check how other
commands that "start the next cycle" behave in relation to r. E.g. I
could see the same problem with c and D (c, d, and D functions end
with a call to new_next() in the current sbase sed). Luckily it looks
like a pretty simple fix of adding a call to do_writes() before
calling new_next() (but I didn't dig deep enough to see if there are
any unintended consequences there).

Perhaps we should bring this up on the austin group list and get them
to clarify the text.
