Correct.  Thanks for reporting it!

You are right that the cause is embedded references inside the license 
fulltext, and the proper solution is to map out the whole region covered 
by one license pattern and then omit scanning that region for other 
licensing patterns.  Implementing that mapping should also speed up the 
tool a bit.
