This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.26 running under perl 5.008005.

[Please enter your report here]

Attached is a tar/gz with a perl program and a file. During running on
my system detailed below it takes:

vjofn# time perl
1062.651u 0.523s 18:51.18 93.9% 10+845k 0+0io 0pf+0w

On a friends 5.12.4 it took 2m28.657s 

On a 5.8.8 , oddly:
[tuc@valhalla DG]$ time perl

real    0m0.009s
user    0m0.005s
sys     0m0.004s

I don't think its such a hefty regex that it should kill the CPU and take
so long.
