I'm afraid it's not a regression, it's a fix!

The expression you're using can match a zero-length string, so after it's
matched the ".cidl" suffix, it then finds a second match of zero-length
immediately afterwards, hense the two copies of "E.idl" in the output

I'm afraid this dark corner was/is under-documented in the docs, but the TR1
text (with which this version is intended to conform) is quite clear that
this is the required behaviour.

As a workaround, you could specify format_first_only in the format flags
(assuming you're replacing the suffix on a single filename), or you could
use an expression like:


and replace with:
