> Regular expressions "[\u]" and "\u", unlike "[[:upper:]]", will not match
any letters when the icase flag is set. Similarly, "\U" will match
anything. Expressions "\l" and "\L" seem to be fine due to the
lower_case_map[] translation.

Thanks, I'm actually in the process of rewriting all the expression parsing
code, so yes the fix will be different, although for the time being, I'll
commit the fix you suggested.
