Description of Problem:

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Just try to complie an application with the following line of code:
System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.IsMatch("Hello", "^*$");

If I am not wrong the regex used in this case (^*$) should match any string.
This works fine on Microsoft's implementation.

Actual Results:
The application hangs forever.

Expected Results:
It should return "True"

How often does this happen? 
Always that I know.

Additional Information:
I am using the mono runtime provided by default in Ubuntu Gutsy.
