Description chaoskeeper 2016-03-30 14:25:33 UTC
A detailed description and tests are given at SO (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/36304204/%D0%A1-regex-segfault-on-long-sequences), in short

std::regex r("\\s+");
std::string out = std::regex_replace(cstring, r, " ");

crashes with SIGSEGV on strings with long space sequences (-O3 can handle around 20k spaces, -O0 handles 12k). Clang produce similar results. Switching to libc++ cures the crashes.

Crash dump shows lengthy stack (35k frames) of 

std::__detail::_Executor<char*, std::allocator<std::__cxx11::sub_match<char*> >, std::__cxx11::regex_traits<char>, true>::_M_dfs

This is a known issue. I plan to fix it, but it's not going to be in GCC 6.

Thanks for reporting!
