Thanks for taking the time to check the betas.
I do not have sufficient info to narrow it down.
I'm supecting the support for multibyte string.
Could you gunzip tar your testcases and send them to me __not__ to
the list.  I suspect they are too big for a mailing list.

If you want to do some debugging.  You could #undef MBS_SUPPORT
in search.c and dfa.c and see the result.  I do not know if glibc-2.2
comes with a regex that is MBS_SUPPORT aware.

Thank you.
