I can also confirm that it did break with v5.29.4 and v5.29.5.  But Karl (as usual!) has been doing a lot of work* on the files in core relevant to regexes, so it's likely that it got fixed in the past few weeks.

* $>
git diff -w v5.29.5..HEAD -- regcomp.c regcomp.h regcomp.sym regexec.c regnodes.h | wc -l
1446

Karl, do you have any comment?

I'll take this ticket for the purpose of closing it within 7 days unless we have new reports of failure.

Thank you very much.
