I'm guessing that you mean "^.*$" when you want to say "match any string".

"^*$" is something else and could either mean the empty string or the string
that contains exactly one character '*'.  Can you verify the behaviour of .NET
with the regex "^*$".  (I'd expect it to match a line with a single '*').

I do agree that the described behaviour (inflooping) is probably a bug in the
mono regex implementation.
