Thanks Sergey for finding this, and to Karl and Hugu for figuring out the fix.

I've just hit this SEGV when testing stuff at work with v5.28.1. It's a SEGV at the same location (for the same reason) but despite gdb showing a short regex and a short target string, I wasn't able to get a small testcase out of it (or I think even have it reliably crash), so it's good to see that (1) I don't have to and (2) it's already fixed.

My only "problem" now is whether our internal build system is up to installing custom patches, or whether I can sell my boss on v5.30.0
