This corrects the Dispatch table from my earlier solution (it wasn't  
general enough).

It also uses Sow, Reap, and Scan rather than Position, Part, and  
Accumulate.

It's not as fast as the other solution, but it's interesting.

piesimo3[n_, m_, r_] :=
  Module[{d = Dispatch@Thread[DeleteCases[Range[0, 9], m] -> -1],
    count = 1},
   First@Last@
     Reap@Scan[(Length@# == r && First@# == m && Sow@count;
         count += Length@#) &,
       Split[RealDigits[Pi - 3, 10, n][[1]] /. d]]
   ]
Timing@piesimo3[10^7, 9, 7]

{38.6643, {1722776, 3389380, 4313727, 5466169}}
