Randomly on startup Emacs will exit with the error "Invalid regex:
Regular expression too big".  Sometime this error will popup on a
save, set fontset, or some other task.  I can't put any rhyme or
reason to it.

Others are reporting it too:

Thanks for the report. Your report was against an old version of Emacs,
and lacks the information necessary for us to investigate it.
The latest version is 23.3. Please open new reports for any issues you
have with the new version.
