The align-regexp command enters infinite loop when it is used with the
default regexp and with REPEAT argument. It's seems to be because the
regexp \s-* matches also zero-length strings.

Steps to reproduce:

 1. Put the following line to the *scratch* buffer:

        foo bar

 2. Put the line inside a region

 3. Type command:

        C-u M-x align-regexp RET \(\s-*\) RET 1 RET 1 RET y

 4. Loop infinitely.


I suggest changing the default regexp to \(\s-+\), like the attached
patch illustrates.

I have misunderstood the behaviour of the regexp. The default space
group \s-* is about the spaces to modify before some other matching
regexp. It's a bit unexpected to me but I originally reported about
infinite loop which is indeed fixed in Emacs 23. So let's close this
bug.
