# New Ticket Created by  Chuck Phillips 
# Please include the string:  [perl #21710]
# in the subject line of all future correspondence about this issue. 
# <URL: http://rt.perl.org/rt2/Ticket/Display.html?id=21710 >


Platforms:

Redhat 7.2 (Perl 5.6)
Redhat 7.3 (Perl 5.6.1)  (perl -V info included below)
Gentoo Current (Perl 5.8)

Following line causes segv:

# perl -e '$a=`cat segv.dat`; $a=~ s/(?:(?:[^A-Za-z]+)|[A-Za-z][A-Za-z]?)*//; print $a'

bzip2'd "segv.dat" included below.

	Hope this helps,
