Thanks for the quick reply, Serhiy! 

You're right -- after letting it run for even longer, it does complete.  Sorry for the trouble.  I have two quick followup questions:

1.  Would this be considered a performance bug?  On my machine, it runs for over 20 seconds before completing.

2.  This regex was a much-simplified version of a larger one (I was trying to isolate the problem for the bug report).  When running the larger regex on the same input, it ran for multiple days without completing.  Should I send the larger regex along, or is this issue out of scope?
