The BackTrackInfoParentheses struct in YARR Interpreter stores two members (prevBegin, prevEnd) which are unnecessary for
the current matching logic. These are storing the last successful match of a parentheses. The result of match is restored
from these members in case of backtrack but this isn't needed because the recordParenthesesMatch() or the resetMatches() 
function updates the result of match in every case.

NOTE: This modification is needed just in the Interpreter because the JIT doesn't store
backtrack information of iterative parentheses for the time being.
