Thanks for the report.  Was this m4 1.4.4 or CVS head?  We are trying to
release m4 1.4.5 in the next couple of weeks; perhaps it is time that we
upgrade the 1.4.x regex.c from the latest upstream copy in gnulib to
fix a number of bugs in the existing code.  My only hesitancy in doing
this is that last time we tried to upgrade regex.c, it broke compilation
on some platforms; but I think upstream has made improvements
since then.

Could you please let me know if the current branch-1_4 still has
this problem?
