Paul, if you understand it, the better.
I am not going to pursue this further, since HP-UX/hppa, while not being
end-of-life yet [1], has very little relevance for GNU.

I looked at the source and don't see how the problem could happen. I lack access to HP-UX/hppa and so can't investigate further myself. You're right that the bug is low priority for GNU.

But what I find strange / buggy is that a library function calls
assert and abort().

With the recent change to the Gnulib regexp code this won't happen any more, unless you compile with -DDEBUG. Of course the underlying bug (whatever it is) is surely still there.
