This one-liner hangs during regexp compilation:
perl5.13.5 -e 'qr/\88/'

In perl5.13.4 it compiles successfully, but qr/\9/ dies, because it is an invalid backreference.

I think the correct behaviour is for qr/\88/ to die the same way.

Note also that it does not hang if the second digit is a valid octal digit:
$ perl5.13.5 -le 'print qr/\87/'

This was caused by:

Subject: [PATCH] Fix /[\8]/ to not match NULL; give correct warning

8 and 9 are not treated as alphas in parsing as opposed to illegal

This also adds tests to verify that 1-3 digits work in char classes.

I created an isOCTAL macro in case that lookup gets moved to a bit
field, as I plan to do later, for speed.
