I have no time to look into this right now but from what you wrote so 
far I guess we have a bug in regex mode, possibly caused by changes the 
API. I haven't tried this cracking mode since JimF introduced it. Jim 
himself is apparently occupied with something else right now, and anyway 
he lost faith in rexgen when the API changed under our feet without 
notice. I'm afraid this might end (worst case) with us dropping regex 
mode sooner or later.

Anyway, thank you for reporting. If you get some clues or info from Jan 
Starke (author of rexgen) or find out something else of importance, 
please report this here as well. I may have time to give this a quick 
look within a week or so.
