This is a bug report for perl from sergey.aleynikov@gmail.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.41 running under perl 5.29.9.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
[Please describe your issue here]

While fuzzing perl v5.29.9-63-g2496d8f3f7 built with afl and run
under libdislocator, I found the following program

split(/00|0\G/, "000")

to emit 'panic: sv_setpvn called with negative strlen -1' diagnostics.
This is a regression between 5.18 and 5.20, bisect points to

commit 03c83e260b8bf6c564b49840536ccd6f47a794ac

    regexec: handle \G ourself, rather than in callers

    Normally a /g match starts its processing at the previous pos() (or at
    char 0 if pos is not set); however in the case of something like /abc\G/
    we actually need to start 3 characters before pos. This has been handled
    by the *callers* of regexec() subtracting prog->gofs from the stringarg
    arg before calling it, or by setting stringarg to strbeg for floating,
    such as /\w+\G/.

    This is clearly wrong: the callers of regexec() shouldn't need to worry
    about the details of getting \G right: move this code into regexec()
    itself.
