Correct me if I am wrong, but the only usage of braces, as you say, is 
for quantifiers ;
{n} {n,} {n,m} {n}? {n,}? {n,m}?
where 'n' and 'm' are integer.

What exactly are you trying to do.  Capturing group are between ()   
and non-capturing (?: )

I could be tempted to say that it is MS misbehaving but who am I to say
