Regexp in 1.7.9 (Was Re: core?)

I thought I posted this a few days ago, but I never saw it appear; my
apologies if I'm just repeating something you've already seen:

1.7.9p1 is definitely not stable; I managed to core-dump without even a
good-bye message to the server log, and I'm almost certain the crash
was caused by a regexp bug.  I've since upgraded to 1.7.9p2 and am having
no problems (the same regexp that crashed 1.7.9p1 works fine with p2)...
so far.
