I have in hand a new release of the regexp package used in 1.7.9p1 and I'm in
the process of testing it to see whether or not I can slip it into 1.7.9p2
instead of the current, older one.  If I can, I hope to release 1.7.9p2 later
today.  (As a bonus, it is claimed that this release also fixes the nasty
exponential performance bug in the older version.)

Downgrading to 1.7.8p4 is non-trivial, but possible with a patch to 1.7.9p1, to
make it produce a DB file that 1.7.8p4 can read.  If I can't make a 1.7.9p2
release today or tomorrow, I'll write up that patch instead.

Sorry for the problems,
