using the latest regex patch and vc7.1 i've accidentally encountered the

 regex re("([^\n]*\\n+\\s+)+NEEDEDSUBITEM2:[^\\s]");
 bool matched = regex_search(text, re); // bad_expression

i figured out those \\s -s may cause the problem.
sample text attached.

and one question:
having "DATA.*?ITEM1(ITEM2)?" and an input like "DATA ITEM1 ITEM1ITEM2"
should ITEM2 be extracted?
i think it would be good to make a note on this case in the doc.
