It works for me with both glibc-2.2.5 and glibc-2.3.1.

If your problem is due to libc having a broken version of regex,
you might be able to get a working version by building
the coreutils with `./configure --with-included-regex'.

Thanks for the help. glibc 2.2.93, at least as distributed by RedHat does appear ot have a broken regex library. I upgraded to glibc 2.3.1 and am no longer experiencing problems.
