Problems with regular expressions

I have the next piece of code:

if re.search('^(taskid|bugid):\\d+',logMessage):
return 0
sys.stderr.write("El comentario tiene que contener el taskid:#### o el bugid:####")
return 1

The regular exprexión is "^(taskid|bugid):\\d+"

Mi problem is that if logMessage == "taskid:234" the regular expression matched teorically, but the result is always "None" and the function returns 1.

¿Does anybody has an idea of what is happening here?
