Thanks for the report.  However, coreutils does not maintain regex code.
 Rather, uses an upstream version from gnulib, which in turn borrows
from glibc.  Perhaps the best course of action would be to try your test
app compiled against glibc, and if that still doesn't meet your needs,
then open a bug report against glibc.  And if glibc works, then open a
bug report against gnulib that gnulib and glibc disagree.
