Subject: [Caml-list] Str broken
The Str module seems not to work:

open Str;;
let re = "(a\\|b)*abb"
let cre = regexp re
let s = "ababababb"
string_match cre s 0

returns false. This is the classic test from the Dragon book.
Before I post a bug report can someone confirm this result please?
I'm using: Objective Caml version 3.09+dev0 (2004-07-13)
