     PATCH: [perl #134034] Assert fail in pattern match
     This turned out to be a general problem in regexec.c.  The function
     regtry() can change the position we are looking at in the target string.
     In particular it can point to just past the end of the string.  Prior
     to this commit, we were assuming that the returned string contained
     valid data in the returned position, and in many places we assumed that
     it was before the end.  This commit fixes that in a bunch of places.
