Hi Titus.

      %rec: Dataset
      %mandatory: Keyword
      %type: Keyword regexp /(Research data|Eye 
movements|Reading|Psychology|Parafoveal processing|Word identification|Sentence 
processing|Word frequency|Word predictability|Lexical ambiguity|Preview 
benefit|Eyetracking|Reading ability)/
      Keyword: Research data
    When I remove a term from the list of keywords, it works, which perhaps
    indicates that the code assumes an upper limit on the length of the
    regular expression.
    Tested with recutils 1.7 built from source on Xubuntu 14.04.

I can't reproduce the problem with GIT recutils.  Your bug is strange,
because no hard limit ever existed in the lenght of a regexp literal in
%type (or %typedef) fields.  I am pretty sure of that.

Could you please try to git clone git.sv.gnu.org/recutils.git and see if
you can reproduce the problem with the latest master?
