we found a trouble in using RegularExpression:

our user often input incorrect regexp like "^*8.*", when mono try to matching
this pattern mono use 100% cpu and this continues about 2.5 minutes. So system
stay this time and do not processing request.

test program:
Regex.Match("888", "^*8.*");
hp-bl9:~/7# /usr/local/mono2.6.4/bin/mono ./ConsoleApplication1.exe

06/01/2010 15:09:19

the same problem on  mono 2.4

it's stop all service so i think severity = major

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. make program with line Regex.Match("888", "^*8.*");
2. run program
Actual Results:  
program using 100%, and perform about 2,5 minutes.

Expected Results:  
function Regex.Match return false and do it not do long time.
