No

MSYS version 1.0.10, 1.0.11

test to reproduce:
1. exec in cmd.exe: echo MS07-028 |gawk ' /^MS.*/ { print "http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/" $1 ".mspx" } /^[^M].*/ { print "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/" $1 }'
or (change [^M] to [0-9]) exec: echo MS07-028 |gawk ' /^MS.*/ { print "http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/" $1 ".mspx" } /^[0-9].*/ { print "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/" $1 }'
2. result:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/MS07-028.mspx
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/MS07-028
3. But must print only first line.

But:
1. exec: echo 3MS07-028 |gawk ' /^MS.*/ { print "http://www.microsoft.com/technet/security/bulletin/" $1 ".mspx" } /^[^M].*/ { print "http://support.microsoft.com/kb/" $1 }'
2. result:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/3MS07-028
3. This is fine. Work properly.

    Your test to reproduce this requires running an MSYS binary (gawk.exe) from the cmd.exe shell. Such binaries are intended to be invoked from MSYS' own bash shell ONLY; use from cmd.exe is unsupported.
