Experimenting as a result of [perl #128213], I ran into some cases where
a quantified anchor gives the wrong result​:

$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /\A{3}a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
no
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /\A{1}a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
no
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /\A+a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
no
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /(?​:\A){3}a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
no
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /b(?​:\z){3}/ ? "yes" : "no"'
no

Nearby expressions work fine​:

$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /(?​:(?​:)\A){3}a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
yes
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /(?​:\A(?​:)){3}a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
yes
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /\A(?​:){3}a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
yes
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /^{3}a/ ? "yes" : "no"'
yes
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /a(?​:){3}b/ ? "yes" : "no"'
yes
$ perl -le 'print "ab" =~ /b(?​:$){3}/ ? "yes" : "no"'
yes

Applying "use re 'debug'" shows that the expressions are all correctly
interpreted as quantified anchors, but the compiled regexps handle the
iteration using different op sequences.
