The regexp in question is when attempting to match all the temp list that is:


\s any space
\w any alphabetic letter.

I guess that \w+\s? is boing to prevent prevent backtracking too often but I am

The problem is when you're _not_ at temporaries. Then you have an exponential number of ways to try because any non-empty suffix of \w+ is also a prefix of \w+.

Something like "&abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz|" should trigger it.
