That's what I feared.

I'd like to say "I'll dig in to this", but early house-move hell is
consuming a lot of my time... all I can say is this is annoying me
unreasonably given how small it is so it is relatively likely that I
will dig in to this sooner or later.

(Compiling the regex code into some gnulib users is bloating them by
>50% which is annoying. And they don't get any later fixes without
a recompilation which is just as annoying. :) )
